Our enthusiastic volunteers collected 70 kg of rubbish including 79 plastic bottles, 33 glass bottles & 49 cans.  We even collected 2 tents, many balls & lots of corflute tree guards.  We also signed a petition as part of a Campaign by Wildcoast for a Container Deposit Scheme in Victoria.  These forms will be presented to Daniel Andrews on World Environment Day.  At the end of the clean our members formed the words "Clean Planet" for 2 photos.  This is part of the Boomerang Alliance campaign for a Container Deposit Scheme.  After all this action we all enjoyed another great BBQ provided by the Australian India Foundation Incorporated
