MORE than 30 volunteers collected a “disappointing” amount of rubbish at Main Beach for Clean Up Australia Day on 6 March.
Barwon Coast’s Maddie Glynn said the group filled 16 bags of rubbish and recycling in less than 90 minutes.
“This may not sound like much, but when you look at the contents of the bags, it’s huge,” she said.
The bulk of the recycling the group collected was alcohol bottles.
“We haven’t even made a dint – the crew didn’t even get to cover the whole of the main car park area,” Maddie said. “There is just so much out there, and for some reason people are not getting the message.”
The bags filled nearly three 240-litre rubbish bins.
Barwon Coast thanked volunteers – most of whom were from Ocean Grove Coastcare and Friends of the Bluff.
Ocean Grove Coastcare is also looking for volunteers for its Festival of Sea stall on 20 March. To volunteer or for more information, email oceangrovecoastcare@gmail.com
