3194BeachPatrol Covering the Mentone Beaches

3194 BeachPatrol

 

3194 BeachPatrol looks after the picturesque beaches of Mentone. 

Mentone beach is at the northern most end of a 20km stretch of open beach that ends at Frankston. The beach is backed by cliffs which were the subject of many famous paintings in the early 1900s. Access to the beach is via steps and a ramp from car parks off Beach Road. The beach is popular with locals and visitors alike especially in summer where dogs are able to be walked on leash.

3194 BeachPatrol was launched in early April 2014. The local residents and members of the  lifesaving club and surrounding school communities have banded together to help create a cleaner, safer beach for all to enjoy.

The three lengths of beach that 3194BeachPatrol cleans are 1) Charman Road to Kitchner Street car park, 2) Kitchener street car park to Mentone Hotel, 3) Mentone Hotel to Warrigal Road

3194 Mentone Beach Patrol February Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au

February down at Mentone Beach was just that little bit cleaner
after 4 volunteers helped out with our beach patrol. Unusually
this time there were 3 syringes and a crack pipe (maybe that's what it's called) was found. Other than that it was the usual of plastic, drink containers and butts. All up we collected 6 bags of rubbish weighing 18.2kgs including 55 bottles and cans.

3194 Mentone Beach Patrol January Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au

January saw 8 volunteers down at Mentone Beach.
We did find a lot of bottles and cans and nearly broke the ton with 98 collected. Our totals were 13 bags of rubbish weighing 34.8kgs. Thanks team.

3194 Mentone Beach Patrol December Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au

With Christmas around the corner and a different starting time
we only had 4 volunteers this month but we collected 9 bags of rubbish weighing 26.2 kgs including 52 bottles and cans.
Overall we had a good year with many new faces joining in.
There is no real sign that the litter problem is reducing yet but we are definitely helping to point out the problem and at the same time reducing the harm.
Thanks everyone at Mentone Beach Patrol.
Have a great Christmas,
Paul.
