A “rubbish plague” – this is what the seven volunteers from Clean4shore together with the Macmasters Beach Surf Club called what they encountered: On only 1 km of beach at Brisbane Waters these tough helpers removed 400 kg of debris on Clean up Australia Day (6th March).
It took 45 bags to fit it all in with a decent percentage of plastic bottles. It makes you wonder what (or if) people think when leaving so much rubbish behind after their picnic. How lucky are we to have motivated people who are willing to get their hands dirty and take action! Without those groups and individuals some beaches wouldn’t look half as clean as they do.
