I've only been with Beach Patrol for a year but today was the largest about of litter removed from the beach I have ever seen! We had 50 amazing volunteers (24 not in the photo) join us to help clean up our beaches! In total we picked up 68.6kgs including 95 bottles and cans. 51.8kgs of rubbish and 16.8kgs of recyclables!
25 people in photo + photographer = 26 volunteer hours
24 people left between 10.40 and 11. approx 18 left with 15 minutes to go so subtract 15 minutes x 18 = 4.5 hours subtract
4 left on 11 and 2 left half hour prior - so subtract another hour -
- .75 for group leader who only got 15 minutes on the beach picking up litter = 43.75 volunteer hours
