Last  Friday Oct 26th Werribee Beach Patrol & the Werribee River Association held a corporate clean up day with Holcim Australia.  With 20 enthusiastic volunteers including 2 on the river in a kayak & a boat we removed a massive amount of rubbish.  Our haul  of 550kg included  

706 drink bottles and cans,

9 shopping trolleys, 11 garbage bags filled with plastic fragments, packaging, food containers & other general rubbish.  This amount of rubbish is totally acceptable especially when we are told that we are the cleanest state!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
