A nice March morning to be down at the beach at Mentone.
There was a fair amount of seaweed washed ashore which also meant there was a lot of plastic pieces mixed in with it. The good thing is we are helping to create an awareness about the plastic problem we as a community have created by logging our rubbish data counts. This month we had 6 volunteers who picked up 7 bags of rubbish weighing 16.4 kgs indluding 9 bottles and cans, thanks Paul.

February down at Mentone Beach was just that little bit cleaner
after 4 volunteers helped out with our beach patrol. Unusually
this time there were 3 syringes and a crack pipe (maybe that's what it's called) was found. Other than that it was the usual of plastic, drink containers and butts. All up we collected 6 bags of rubbish weighing 18.2kgs including 55 bottles and cans.

With Christmas around the corner and a different starting time
we only had 4 volunteers this month but we collected 9 bags of rubbish weighing 26.2 kgs including 52 bottles and cans.
Overall we had a good year with many new faces joining in.
There is no real sign that the litter problem is reducing yet but we are definitely helping to point out the problem and at the same time reducing the harm.
Thanks everyone at Mentone Beach Patrol.
Have a great Christmas,
Paul.

A nice relaxing day down at Mentone Beach today with 13 volunteers on the hunt for rubbish. The beach was pretty clear of rubbish with the majority of it being collected from around the vegetation. This thick vegetation does a great job in stopping the litter before it gets to the beach. It's still dissapointing to find large amounts of rubbish each month
but at least there is more discussion now on how to improve things.
Today we collected 10 bags of rubbish weighing 33.7 kgs including 60 bottles and cans.
thanks everyone,
Paul

We are now consistently getting good numbers for our Beach Patrols which is great and the beach seems to have less rubbish which hopefully is a sign that not only are we good at picking up rubbish but that less rubbish is actually being dropped.
Yesterday we had 10 volunteers and we picked up 5 bags of rubbish weighing 24.1kgs which included 52 bottles & cans.
Thanks everyone,
Paul.

Thanks to all 15 volunteers who turned up for our September Beach Patrol and continued with our goal of reducing the amount of litter at Mentone Beach.

9 bags of rubbish was collected weighing 21.3 kgs including 24 bottles and cans.

Look out for a following email regarding the Melbourne Marathon.

It would be great to have some Mentone Beach Patrollers available to help,

thanks everyone Paul.
