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 April Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au

For our April beach patrol we had 6 volunteers cleaning up the Mentone Beach.

We collected 66 bottles and cans. Usually we mainly get glass and aluminium but this time we had 28 plastic bottles which is quite a lot more than normal.

Also there was more polystyrene pieces than normal which are very difficult to pick up when in tiny balls.

So in total we picked up 21 bags of rubbish weighing 52.3 kgs.

Well done team,


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

Our March Beach Patrol saw 8 eager volunteers give up an hour of their Saturday Morning to get out and about in the fresh air

and help out the environment. We didn't collect as much rubbish as usual this month which might have ben due to Clean up Australia Day

being only a couple of weeks before. All up we collected 8 bags of rubbish weighing 19.2kgs including 48 bottles and cans.

Next clean is on 21st April, thanks Paul.

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.
