Albert Park Secondary School In Port Melbourne

This morning we had 9 students from Albert Park College.  We gave them a presentation in their class room about plastic litter.   We enacted a demonstration on the wastefulness of making a disposable plastic spoon. Then we went out a did a beach audit of the litter on the First Point Beach in Port Melbourne.  We separated into three groups and each group cleaned and audited a certain section.

The students picked up 571 items of plastic.

Elwood's June clean up took place on a chilly morning.  That didn't deter twelve of our most dedicated volunteers from turning up.  Together they cleaned up 22kg of litter off the beach. This was a huge effort for a small group. Our beach and our bay is a better place for it!

3207 Cleans Lorimer St outside Westgate Park
The length of this section of the street is about 1 km.  In one hour we collected 218 bottles and cans and 2 large sacks and 6 BeachPatrol bags of litter.  A lot of disposable coffee cups with plastic lids.  It was awful.  On the way to drop the bottles in a recycle bin we pick up another 56 bottles and cans around Garden city shops.  Where is our Container Deposit Scheme???

This Saturday (21st May) we were horrified to see just how much litter was waiting for our crew at Elwood beach.  We cleaned up around the Head Street jetty.  Thanks to our 18 volunteers, we hauled 28kg off the beach.

Sadly we found a dead albatross, wrapped up in fishing wire.  This was a sad find but reinforced our purpose as a dedicated team of locals, making time each month to clean up the beach and highlighting the issue of beach litter to the passers by.
