3207BeachPatrol In September by admin

15 volunteers came out on this glorious morning.   However 1 hour later, we had picked up over 50 kg of litter from the sand, under the pier, out of the ocean and from a rock groin.  A collection of over 60 bottles, many plastic bags from the bottom of the water. 

3207Beachpatrol in 6 Deg Weather by 3207@beachpatrol.com.au

In spite of a rather chilly morning, 18 volunteers turned out to remove litter and plastic fragments of Sandridge Beach.  There had been strong onshore winds this past week.  This brought in a plethora of plastic nurdles along the high tide line indicated by the dark lines in the photo below.

3207BeachPatrol In July by admin

With the windy and somewhat rough weather the last two weeks, a lot of plastic fragments had washed up on to the beach. 

Small pieces of plastic about 1-2 cm long were all over.  Plus some other items that made attention;

8 syringes some with needles

A medical boot for ankle injuries was dug out of the sand

Plastic bottles that had rolled up the beach with the onshore winds pushing them along.
