3194BeachPatrol Covering the Mentone Beaches

3194 BeachPatrol

 

3194 BeachPatrol looks after the picturesque beaches of Mentone. 

Mentone beach is at the northern most end of a 20km stretch of open beach that ends at Frankston. The beach is backed by cliffs which were the subject of many famous paintings in the early 1900s. Access to the beach is via steps and a ramp from car parks off Beach Road. The beach is popular with locals and visitors alike especially in summer where dogs are able to be walked on leash.

3194 BeachPatrol was launched in early April 2014. The local residents and members of the  lifesaving club and surrounding school communities have banded together to help create a cleaner, safer beach for all to enjoy.

The three lengths of beach that 3194BeachPatrol cleans are 1) Charman Road to Kitchner Street car park, 2) Kitchener street car park to Mentone Hotel, 3) Mentone Hotel to Warrigal Road

3194 Mentone Beach Patrol February Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au

A top day to be out and about and we had 7 volunteers down at Mentone.

Totals were 12 bags of rubbish weighing 24.8kgs including 56 bottles & cans.

Not as much rubbish as we usually collect but we'll see if this is just a an anomoly or an ongoing good sign.

Thanks to the team,

Paul.

3194 Mentone Beach Patrol December Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au

Our last clean up saw 8 volunteers collect 13 bags of rubbish weighing 44.2kgs. This included 45 bottles and cans.

We then caught up afterwards for a chat at the local cafe over the road. Well done to all the volunteers at Mentone Beach Patrol for your efforts this year.

3194 Mentone Beach Patrol November Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au

Very encouraging, we're having a good number of volunteers turning up over the last few months.

Today we had 11 on a beautiful Saturday morning. We're lucky to have some vegetation along the foreshore

which gives the litter a change to be trapped between each monthly beach clean.

I think we're gradualy getting on top of keeping the bush area litter free - a good positive.

Today we collected 9 bags of rubbish weighing 28.2 kgs including 43 bottles and cans.

3194 Mentone Beach Patrol March Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au
A nice March morning to be down at the beach at Mentone.
There was a fair amount of seaweed washed ashore which also meant there was a lot of plastic pieces mixed in with it. The good thing is we are helping to create an awareness about the plastic problem we as a community have created by logging our rubbish data counts. This month we had 6 volunteers who picked up 7 bags of rubbish weighing 16.4 kgs indluding 9 bottles and cans, thanks Paul.
