Long Island is now 200 kg of rubbish lighter

With assistance from the oyster barge, eight students form the Rowland Hassall School in Parramatta joined the Clean4Shore program for another clean-up event along the Hawkesbury River. The group removed 6 bags, weighing 200 kg, of rubbish from the Northern foreshore of Long Island from Sandbrook Channel to the Railway Bridge, a well known hot spot for marine debris. Amongst countless small items the volunteers bagged oyster products, a plastic boat, water drums and eskies. The event was sponsored by the Hornsby Council and Greater Sydney Local Land Services. What great effort and fun on such a bright sunny day!
