Clean up Australia Day 2018

Another successful clean up Australia day was held on Sunday 4th March along the shores of Lime Kiln Bay. 27 people, including 6 Guides and their leaders, gave up some of their time to scour the mangrove edges for rubbish. Thanks to Alan Fairley for organising the day and manning the OFF marquee (before the wind blew it off!).

A dingy on the ponds allowed collection of rubbish otherwise inaccessible.

A total of 22 bags of rubbish was collected, plus car tyres, tube, bits of pipe, styrofoam and bits of wood. One OFF member even found a string of pearls !! (only costume jewellery)

A large amount of rubbish was found at the stormwater outlet that enters Lime Kiln Bay mangroves near the golf course leachate treatment plant. Loaves of bread in plastic bags with mushrooms growing out of the bags look like they may have been dumped. The large amount of rubbish collected highlighted the need for a GPT on the stormwater drain coming from the Peakhurst Industrial estate.
