After just one hot day a visit to the beach shows the state of our littering attitude and how bad we need a cash for containers scheme in place.

 

In approx. 100 m along the Port Melbourne beach today we picked up approx. 25 bottles and cans that had been left there from last night.  Other passers by were also disgusted.  One said "It's not that hard is it to take it home". 

Ironically there are always enough littered plastic bags too to put the littered bottles in.

We had 8 enthusiastic volunteers for our January Beach Patrol at Mentone.

There seemed to be more cigarette butts on the shore line than usual this time but not as many plastic fragments.

It seems odd how some days one type of thing will get washed up and different things on another.

Williamstown 3016 Impromptu Clean up

A group of people from 3106BeachPatrol and Scab duty ( a sister organization in Williamstown) went to a less popular beach to collect rubbish there. 

The beach (a sanctuary!)has little sand but more Mangrove type trees.   

In one hour they collect 1260 bottles and cans!   This just show again how badly Victoria needs a cash for container scheme.  Our govt needs to come a visit these sites rather than listen to lobbyists.
