Eurobodalla Shire Council Media Alert
Southeast swells have brought more than crashing waves to Eurobodalla’s coastline, as takeaway containers and facemasks wash onto the shire’s beaches.
Eurobodalla Council’s manager of environmental services Deb Lenson said these were the first deposits to reach Eurobodalla following a shipping container spill in May.
“The APL England lost 50 shipping containers into the sea while en route to Melbourne,” Ms. Lenson said.
The Tangaroa Blue Foundation has been tracking the spilled debris since the containers were lost. Council’s environmental education officer Bernadette Davis said items like plastic takeaway containers and unused facemasks had begun washing ashore yesterday.
