Looks can be Deceiving by admin

 The beaches looked quite clean at first glance.  However with 30 volunteers turning out,  we soon found that the rubbish was not on the sand but at the waters edge or in the grasses and trees above the sand.

3207Beachpatrol Cleans on Clean Up Australia Day by admin

28 volunteers including 4 new people came out to join the nationwide Clean up Australia Day event.  We cleaned about 1 km of beach in Port Melbourne down to Kerford Rd.  The beaches were mostly clean with not having had any hot summer days for the past week or more.  A number of burst helium balloons with their strings were found along the high tide mark.

Bottle Litter is #1 on 3207Beaches by admin

3207BeachPatrol had their Feb clean last weekend.  With 35 volunteers, we cleaned two of our beaches.   The most littered item was the discarded bottle, Coke bottles, water bottles (another Coke product), beer bottles and more.   These were in the shrubbery along side the beaches.  People must think this is a dumping ground.  Approx 50 bottles were removed from 200 m of trees.
