On the afternoon of the 18th of August, we had our first ever event as Bayside Intrepid Landcare! The weather was terrible, heavy wind and rain, nonetheless 21 people turned up in their green costumes and together we collected over 10 large buckets of rubbish containing a mix of plastics, metals and Styrofoam waste products.
Specific pollutants that we found included:
Syringes and other drug related waste products
Bottle caps and Plastic bottles
and sadly lots more…
While we plan to have many more beach clean ups in the years to come, we need your help to keep our coastal areas pristine. If you’re in the area, pick up the rubbish you see, clean up after yourself and inspire others to do the same, help us keep our beaches clean.
