3930 Beachpatrol Mt Eliza Beaches

3930 Beach Patrol

Mt Eliza BeachPatrol aims to protect our precious marine life by removing rubbish & debris from our bay beaches and foreshore. We also strive to raise the awareness of the Mt Eliza community and visitors of why it is important to keep our beaches clean.

Regular beach visitors will notice that the beach is often littered with rubbish, particularly after heavy rains or storms, when storm water brings street litter to the Bay, and debris are washed in from other areas. The task of cleaning this rubbish is more than Council can manage and that's where BeachPatrol comes in.

Our fabulous volunteers are community minded locals who share a passion for keeping our beaches clean for everyone to enjoy. We encourage volunteers to become regulars but understand everyone is time poor. That's why 1 hour is the perfect amount of time. Come on down to our next clean up, bring the kids and get them involved. Tell your friends and help spread the word.

You can also find us on Facebook 3930 Facebook page See you at the next clean up!

3930 Beach Patrol! by 3930@beachpatrol.com.au

Thanks to these amazing Villagers we were able to remove over 70kg of rubbish from Moondah Beach this morning!  Rubbish including a car tyre, huge plastic drum, 68 bottles and cans and a full bin load of wrappers and general trash...Shocking to see thousands of nurdles and tiny plastic fragments along the entire tidal lines. 

Great to see a heap of new faces and special thanks to our regulars. 

See you all next month! #lesswaste #plasticfreejuly #plasticpollution #waronwaste  @ Moondah Beach

A windy Mt Eliza Beach Patrol! by 3930@beachpatrol.com.au

During our hour of cleaning we chock filled 14 bags with all the usual suspects - tiny fragments and nurdles, cans, plastic bags, straws, bottles, fishing line....etc

Scaling embankments and balancing on rocks our crew did an amazing job. 

 

Sorry about the sole image ... after dozens of attempts to re-load the rest of them it failed....grrr.

 

Thanks for your great efforts! See you next time!
