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 November Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au

Very encouraging, we're having a good number of volunteers turning up over the last few months.

Today we had 11 on a beautiful Saturday morning. We're lucky to have some vegetation along the foreshore

which gives the litter a change to be trapped between each monthly beach clean.

I think we're gradualy getting on top of keeping the bush area litter free - a good positive.

Today we collected 9 bags of rubbish weighing 28.2 kgs including 43 bottles and cans.

A good turn out again with 10 volunteers helping out. There was a lot of seaweed washed up on the beach which also meant plastic mixed in.

In the end we collected 15 bags of rubbish weighing 48.3 kgs including 61 bottles and cans. Well done Team Mentone.

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 October Wrap by 3194@beachpatrol.com.au
We are now consistently getting good numbers for our Beach Patrols which is great and the beach seems to have less rubbish which hopefully is a sign that not only are we good at picking up rubbish but that less rubbish is actually being dropped.
Yesterday we had 10 volunteers and we picked up 5 bags of rubbish weighing 24.1kgs which included 52 bottles & cans.
Thanks everyone,
Paul.
