The long S. Melb beaches don't have the corners to trap larger plastic bits.  What we find on these beaches is lots of small items.  Most commonly bottle top plastic lids and plastic straws.

10 People came out today to clean about 600 m of beach front.

The final Elwood beach clean of 2016 took place last Saturday and was followed by a very enjoyable morning tea.  It was a pleasure to take the time to have a coffee together and to wish each other a Merry Christmas!  We look forward to another great year ahead, with the next clean up taking place on 21 January at 9 am.
