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 3194admin

For February we had 8 volunteers clean up at Mentone Beach which was a bit cleaner than normal.

The typical smoking spots still had lots of butts and quite a lot of candy bars wrappers that didn't make it to the bin.

All up we collected 9 bags of rubbish weighing 21.6kgs including 37 bottles and cans.

3194 Mentone Beach Patrol January Wrap by 3194admin


The rubbish must have known it was Beach Patrol Day today because it was there in droves.

I'm not sure how the currents and tides work but for some reason today we saw
big numbers of aluminium cans all washed up with the seaweed. Most looked like they had been in the ocean for a while.
All up our 7 volunteers collected 27 bags of rubbish weighing 101.1 kgs including 243 aluminium cans, 28 plastic bottles & 3 glass bottles. We also heard that a man and 2 of our Beach Patrol early birds had picked up a large wheely bin of cans (see photo below) before we started so it could have been 500 plus cans on the beach this morning.
One good thing with the rubbish being so obvious was that the public took more notice of who we are and what we're doing.
Good work everyone,
Paul.

3194 Mentone Beach Patrol December Wrap by 3194admin
