People Power Cleans Georges River

On 19 August despite bitter wind, 24 volunteers from Oatley Flora and Fauna, Bankstown Bushland Society and Oatley Kayak Crew participated in a clean-up of the beach and surrounds at Beauty Point Reserve, on the Georges River at Padstow Heights.

In four hours, we collected 49 large bags containing 100’s of straws, bottle tops, lighters, syringes, and glass and plastic bottles. Not to mention thousands of polystyrene pieces. But we all wondered how a tyre and wheel, a suitcase and even furniture ended up in the river!!
