A great day out on the Hawkesbury River for another clean up along the river’s foreshore was had by the team from Data Dimensions, local oyster growers and Macmasters SLSC volunteers.
Targeting the Hawkesbury River, Sandbrook Channel and Long Island, coordinator Graham Johnston, met the team at Brooklyn Marina where they were given a project brief, geared up and headed out on Moxton’s barge and the two surf club IRBs for the trip over to Sandbrook Channel.
Favourable high tides enabled the groups to reach the foreshore, with litter quickly filling the large barge. The group worked enthusiastically, gathering over 50 bags of mixed litter. Three tyres were also removed.
Larger items included, painted timber flooring, milk crates, plastic sheeting, blue tarps, plastic fuel tanks, large pieces of foam, masses of plastic bottles and small foam pieces and twenty tennis balls.
