3207 cleans on a beautiful spring day

A 27 deg day awaited Port Melbourne beach cleans this month.  A beautiful day, blue sky, calm water and quite a clean beach.  The recent higher winds had made some extra high tides that left their litter up in the beach grass area.

Today was the first launch of the new Beachpatrol litter collection bags.   They were a big hit with the volunteers.

30 people turned out with most staying on to go to the platform café after wards.

 4 syringes were found

62 bottles picked up.

Thank you to all 3191 members who attended today's beach clean in wild windy conditions!  
School holidays and possibly post Grand Final fatigue meant a smaller turnout of about 14.  However, we still managed to collect 14.5kg of rubbish.
The most common items were small plastic bits, glass and wrappers.  
Also, a big thank you to Rotary Sandringham for the sausage sizzle - they have offered to come every month, which is fantastic!
