3182 Beach Patrol looks after the St Kilda Beaches, from Fraser Street to St Kilda Marina. These are some of the busiest beaches on Port Phillip Bay and capture a lot of litter from the Yarra River and large drains that empty onto the beach and due to the presence of the Harbour and Marina. If you live in 3182 or just love St Kilda beach and want to meet some enthusiastic like minded people who care for the beach and bay then contact the 3182 Beach Patrol and join us on our monthly beach cleans, at 9am on the second Saturday of each month. We clean a given section of the beach for an hour and then have a well earned coffee at one of the beach side cafes. Bring your own gloves, collection bags and litter pickers are provided but by all means bring your own. Visit and like us on Facebook too!
After the weather this last week, the poor St Kilda beaches were a mess. Some volunteers did an extra clean on Sunday to try to stop all this plastic getting out into the ocean.
1 hour, 5 people picked up 150 plastic bottles and cans
2 syringes were found
An awesome Beach Patrol this morning! 41 of us picked up 140kg of litter, bringing our total for the year to over 1 tonne!
A big thanks to the 36 of you that turned out to the last 3182 Beach Patrol at Turkey Toms beach. It was a beautiful Spring morning and we collected 118kg of litter, bringing our total this year to 883kg.
