nflatable Rescue Boats (IRB’s) were the weapon of choice when it came to attacking the pollution issue in the Sandbrook Channel. The IRB’s, loaded with 7 eager volunteers from Rolland Hassall School, proved a force to be reckoned with in the known litter hotspot.
As part of the Hawkesbury Estuary Clean4Shore program, the volunteer team was tasked with removing as much litter as possible from the far end foreshore of the Sandbrook Channel. And boy did they deliver!
30 bags of debris weighing in at approximately 250kgs were removed from the foreshore, encompassing everything from your standard plastic bottles and polystyrene fragments, to boat decking and outdoor furniture.
Needless to say, the waterway is looking much healthier and breathing a little lighter after this phenomenal clean up effort.
This event would not have been possible without the support of Hornsby Council and Greater Sydney Local Land Services.
