Elwood's new impromptu clean ups are making a huge difference!  Locals who live close to the beach and want to clean up litter hotspots between our monthly group clean ups should contact us at 3184@beachpatrol.com.au to be added to the special contact list.  This month alone an additional 76kg was collected as well as the amount collected at our monthly session!

8 Mentone Beach Patrollers were on duty for our October clean up. The beach was raked for rubbish the day befofe and also with a windy day

there was little little litter that remained on the sandy part of the beach to collect.

The good thing about Mentone Beach though is that we still have a fair amount of vegetation so the litter can get trapped before it gets blown

out into the bay. So this month we collected the smaller things from the beach like cigarette butts, polystyrene beads, nurdles etc or headed for the scrub.

All up we collected 11 bags of rubbish weighing 23.8 kgs and most importantly all the data is being recorded amongst all the beach patrol groups

and as one big team we aim to make a difference in community attitudes.
