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

Mentone Beach Patrol was lucky enough to have 6 employees from the company Cox Automotive devote a couple of hours of their day

to help clean up along Mentone Beach. Everyone seemed to enjoy the experience and they should be proud of their acheivements.

At first sight the beach area seemed clean but the enthusiastic group scoured the scub and shore to reveal the hidden rubbish.

All up we collected a massive 34 bags of rubbish weighing 198.6 kgs including 99 bottles and cans.

Great to have the team at Cox Automotive involved,

thanks Paul.

Another good turnout with 10 volunteers helping out with our May Beach Patrol.

It was a terrible day as far as polystyrene foam balls with thousands of them being washed up after recent wild weather

and mixed in with the seaweed. We did however make some impact with the worst sections being considerably improved.

Cigarette butts was another thing that was prominent but on the positive side hardly any bottles and cans were found.

All up we collected 16 bags of rubbish weighing 67.1 kgs including 7 bottles and cans.

Thanks for everyones efforts,

Paul.

Well done to our 9 eager volunteers who helped out for our April Beach Patrol.

Judging from the rubbish collected most of it seems to come from food & drink and it's packaging.

All up we collected 9 bags of rubbish weighing 20.5 kgs including 44 bottles & cans.

See you next month for another Mentone Beach Patrol litter hunt,

Paul.

3194 Mentone Beach Patrol November Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au
A nice relaxing day down at Mentone Beach today with 13 volunteers on the hunt for rubbish. The beach was pretty clear of rubbish with the majority of it being collected from around the vegetation. This thick vegetation does a great job in stopping the litter before it gets to the beach. It's still dissapointing to find large amounts of rubbish each month
but at least there is more discussion now on how to improve things.
Today we collected 10 bags of rubbish weighing 33.7 kgs including 60 bottles and cans.
thanks everyone,
Paul
