We had yet another very successful year with coastal clean-up, we took part in the annual event again which we do in September. This Clean up gets recorded and item collected gets entered into a data sheet, and then SA Plastics calculate what gets picked up through the country on the day of the Clean-up. Just briefly we managed to collect 200 full bags of rubbish, crab nets and crates and metres upon metres of fishing line and metres of rubber band fan belt.
We then saw the need to do a mid-year collection from Grannies Pool, the weather did not play our part on the day but we still got some support and a few more bags were filled and removed of the beach.
We did another clean from Main beach in St Francis, which also saw us remove 8 full bags off the beach.
The main comments we received was that it was not as dirty as last year, and this is due to the fact the FOSTER also did a clean-up in Cape St Francis earlier on in the year. So these clean-ups are most defiantly making a difference and we noticed that smaller items were collected in last year’s clean-up.
Thank you for those who took part and we look forward to seeing you at our next clean-ups.
