3184BeachPatrol Covering the Beautiful Elwood Beaches

3184 Beach Patrol

3184 Beach patrol looks after the beautiful Elwood beaches.  It is sandwiched between the 3182 and 3186 zones.  The Elwood beach is a particularly attractive beach for local families.  Its wide light coloured sandy beach with gentle lapping waves makes it an ideal picnic and swimming destination for family and friends.  When clean, the beach is a gorgeous site.  Lets keep it that way!

Elwood Beach Patrol dates for 2018:    We meet at 9 am, see next beach clean up info on the home page or our facebook page for details of meeting point.

Elwood's big haul in April by 3184@beachpatrol.com.au

This month the beach seemed to be covered in endless little pieces of plastic, the real nasty stuff that is so bad for the marine environment. The sea life and the birds can thank us for removing more than 27kg of it off the beach. That is almost 1kg of micro litter per volunteer. It was so bad that most people found it hard to stop at the end of the clean up. This is a reminder that the contents of the urban streets end up on our beach after stormy weather.

See you next time on 19 May at the Elwood Sailing Club.

Elwood's March clean up by 3184@beachpatrol.com.au

We had another strong turn out to clean up our beach at the tail-end of summer. There was plenty to do and our volunteer force collected more than 17kg, which was mostly mircoplastics. Given that this sort of litter weighs very little, that was a huge haul. This demonstrates once again that while the council beach cleaning machines take away the bulky items on the surface, there is still a huge litter problem on the foreshore. Well done to all who participated and kept this waste from entering the marine environment.

Next clean up will be Saturday 21 April at Head Street Jetty, 9am.

Elwood update for Feb 2018 by 3184@beachpatrol.com.au

We had our biggest turn out yet with a strong team of 30 volunteers this month. Cleaning up around the rocks meant that we picked up many discarded plastic bottles, as well as endless tiny fragments in the sand. Thanks to the new volunteers who showed up and to our regulars too! It's great to see such a strong start to the year. Keep it up!

Next clean up is 17 March, meeting at Point Ormond car park.
