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 September Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au

Great numbers this week with 12 volunteers including 5 newcomers.

There was quite a lot of polystyrene that was found on our clean up which is very hard to pick up

with most of it being small pieces and as usual lots of plastic wrappings.

All up we collected 10 bags of rubbish weighing 30.8kgs which included 45 bottles and cans.

thanks everyone,

Paul.

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


August saw 7 volunteers help clean up Mentone Beach and record valuable data as to what ends up at our beaches.

We collected 10 bags of rubbish weighing 28.2 kgs including 34 bottles and cans.

A disturbing find was the amount of nurdles that was washed up on the beach.

Usually we don't find many at all but this week there were thousands.

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

Nice turn out for our July Beach Patrol with 8 eager volunteers helping out.

Too much rubbish to go into the weekly rubbish collection hence the delay in getting this report out.

All up we collected 20 bags of rubbish weighing 68.3 kgs including 168 bottles & cans.

Well done.

3194 Mentone Beach Patrol November Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au
A nice relaxing day down at Mentone Beach today with 13 volunteers on the hunt for rubbish. The beach was pretty clear of rubbish with the majority of it being collected from around the vegetation. This thick vegetation does a great job in stopping the litter before it gets to the beach. It's still dissapointing to find large amounts of rubbish each month
but at least there is more discussion now on how to improve things.
Today we collected 10 bags of rubbish weighing 33.7 kgs including 60 bottles and cans.
thanks everyone,
Paul
