Thanks to everyone who joined the 3191 Clean Up Australia Day group.  Below is an extract from the 2016 Clean Up Australia Day website.

 Over 682,000 volunteers rallied to clean up their local parks, waterways, beaches, sporting fields, bushland and roadways at over 7,117 locations across Australia. This is an increase of nearly 1,000 sites over 2015. 

Since the event started 26 years ago Australians have donated more than 31.2 million hours towards removing accumulated rubbish from their local communities through Clean Up Australia events, removing an estimated 331.5 thousand ute loads of rubbish from more than 166 thousand locations across the country. To put this into context – this is the equivalent of end to end utes from Sydney to Brisbane via the coastline. 

“So long as we are prepared to get involved and get our hands dirty, Clean Up events such as those of this last week will continue to make a difference. The ever increasing presence of plastics, beverage containers and other single-use packaging mean we need to continue to challenge our governments to implement effective waste management and recycling programs to reduce the amount of wasted resource that ends up in our precious environment. Clean Up activities provide vital community led data and feedback that influences decision makers. 

Around 80% of the rubbish removed each year would have been recyclable if it wasn’t left to deteriorate in the environment. 

Thanks to everyone for participating in this great national event; making our country cleaner, safer, and more naturally beautiful!

Victoria

3191 April clean up
Great clean up last Sunday at the very picturesque end of Sandringham beach, near Red Bluff cliffs.  Several new faces which was great! We picked up 14kg of rubbish, which is amazing since most of us felt like the most common item was broken polystyrene, straws and cigarette butts.  Not great for the weight stats!  Heading in to the cooler weather now, so hope you still feel inspired to keep cleaning!  We'll be there, rain or shine, but maybe not hail!

Thanks to everyone who helped clean the Hampton dog beach at the end of January.  Not a lot of big stuff, but lots of small plastics and wrappers.  Not a big weight haul, but that doesn't always reflect the litter we find.  Enjoyed a coffee together at the SHQ cafe.  Next clean up delayed by 1 week for Clean Up Australia Day-Sunday 6 March.

Warmer weather encouraging lots of volunteers to clean Sandringham Beach.  15 beach patrollers collected over 44kg of rubbish!  A lot was found stuffed between the rocks on the groyne - fishermen?  As always, plastic in all its shapes, sizes and colours, the main problem.
