3016 Beachpatrol Williamstown Beaches

 

 
3016 Beach Patrol - Williamstown

The historic old colonial area of Williamstown exudes charm.  3016Beachpatrol based in Williamstown is there to help their beaches out.  Positioned on the corner of the Port Phillip Bay and the mouth of the Yarra river, Williamstown gets more than its fare share of careless littering.

We meet once a month for one hour to clean up one of our beaches.  We are often joined by other groups with the same goals.

3016 Feb Clean by 3016@beachpatrol.com.au

Great turnout today, heaps of rubbish...30kg at an estimate. The 2 large white bags are full of recyclable cans and bottles. Well done everyone!!!

Next Cleanup: Clean Up Australia Day Sunday 6th of March at Jawbone Marine Sanctuary.

November Clean Up by 3016@beachpatrol.com.au

Another combined effort, this time supporting Friends of Greenwich Bay litter hotspots project. The team removed 8.5 large Cleanup (cleanup Australia) Bags of waste, and x3.5 large bags of recyclable items (bottles, cans, etc) at The Warmies, along the rocky banks of the Yarra River. This also included a very large a mount of litter associated with local fishing, including discarded fishing line, bait bags, and packaging from other fishing items and equipment - there is an obvious problem with fisherman not taking responsibility for their personal waste and is an issue that must be addressed.

Thanks to everyone who turned up!!! It's always great to mix with other local groups - many hands!

October Clean Up / Open Day / Birthday by 3016@beachpatrol.com.au

Our October Clean Up was part of the Friends of Williamstown Wetlands (FOWW) open day. It was a great event giving us the opportunity to meet other community groups and learn a bit about the great work they're doing. Williamstown is lucky to have all these motivated volunteers protecting our shoreline, waterways and parks! The event was held at Williamstown Highschool with 14 volunteers walking from the school to Williamstown beach collecting 16kgs of rubbish. A bug thanks to Marilyn from FOWW for supplying the Beach Patrol Birthday cake....it looked great and tasted even better! Well done to everyone involved on the day!
