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 everyone Paul.

Mentone Beach Patrol was lucky enough to have 6 employees from the company Cox Automotive devote a couple of hours of their day

to help clean up along Mentone Beach. Everyone seemed to enjoy the experience and they should be proud of their acheivements.

At first sight the beach area seemed clean but the enthusiastic group scoured the scub and shore to reveal the hidden rubbish.

All up we collected a massive 34 bags of rubbish weighing 198.6 kgs including 99 bottles and cans.

Great to have the team at Cox Automotive involved,

thanks Paul.

Another good turnout with 10 volunteers helping out with our May Beach Patrol.

It was a terrible day as far as polystyrene foam balls with thousands of them being washed up after recent wild weather

and mixed in with the seaweed. We did however make some impact with the worst sections being considerably improved.

Cigarette butts was another thing that was prominent but on the positive side hardly any bottles and cans were found.

All up we collected 16 bags of rubbish weighing 67.1 kgs including 7 bottles and cans.

Thanks for everyones efforts,

Paul.

Well done to our 9 eager volunteers who helped out for our April Beach Patrol.

Judging from the rubbish collected most of it seems to come from food & drink and it's packaging.

All up we collected 9 bags of rubbish weighing 20.5 kgs including 44 bottles & cans.

See you next month for another Mentone Beach Patrol litter hunt,

Paul.
