3191BeachPatrol Covering the Sandringham Beaches

Sandringham Beach Patrol is a friendly volunteer beach-cleaning group, who meet for up to an hour each month (we’ll take 30 mins if you’re on the run!) to clean sections of the Sandringham foreshore.

We are a diverse group who share a common interest in caring for the wonderful beach at our doorstep.   

Only one hour a month helps to provide a safer, cleaner, more beautiful environment and a natural unpolluted habitat for marine life and beach creatures.   We believe in the power of “many hands make light work” and that joining Beach Patrol is a simple way of helping within our community.

Members have a simple, but important task, of collecting rubbish, however, we also welcome ideas on promoting a better understanding of packaging and litter in our environment, to the wider community.

Regular beach visitors will notice that the beach is often littered with rubbish, particularly after heavy rains, when storm water brings street litter to the Bay.  The task of cleaning this rubbish is more than Council can manage, but with a little help from BeachPatrol, the area is greatly improved!

We meet at the beach at 9am on the last Sunday of the month.  Become a member to be advised by email of the meeting point of our next clean.

Join us before netball, basketball, shopping or golf – come on the way – every little hand helps! 

"LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE!"

Sandringham March clean up by 3191@beachpatrol.com.au

Thanks to our little group, today we picked up 7kg of rubbish, including 8 bottles/cans and 110 cigarette butts. 

Sandringham April Clean Up! by 3191@beachpatrol.com.au

A great turn-out on a beautiful morning!  We collected 21kg of rubbish, 36 bottles and cans and 126 cigarette butts! YUK.  We also cleared out a lot of rubbish from between the rocks in the groyne.  Obviously from fishermen who, despite appreciating and taking from the beautiful bay, think that it's ok to wedge their fishing bait bags, fishing line, cans, containers and plastic bags into the rocks. 


3191 February Clean Up by 3191@beachpatrol.com.au

We collected 4kg of rubbish, 325 cigarette butts, 8 bottles and 2 syringes.  There was a huge amount of small plastic pieces beneath the Red Bluff Cliffs, which a few of us spent most of the hour cleaning.  These small pieces of course originate from larger plastic items which have broken down over time and made their way to our beautiful little beach.
