The Maroubra Scavenge
Of course there was no shortage of butts to be found, with our total tally reaching 3,281. The most butts was actually collected by Tanya with over 300! Scoring herself a 5-class pass to The Collaborative Maroubra.
Participants were bringing in bags packed to the brim; everything from thousands of Styrofoam balls, stacks of soft plastic packaging to straws and coffee cups, countless plastic lids and so much more.
In total 306.8kg of litter was collected including a 120kg of recycling from Maorubra. Very grateful for the support from Randwick City Council who promptly came down and collected all the litter… Somewhat disheartening to see all our tirelessly separated litter go into the same truck though!
Oh and how could we forget, the Underwater Research Group led by Rianti Bieler took a journey down to Bare Island and dived below the depths to pick-up 26.7kg of rubbish! This included 13.5kg of fishing sinkers, 3.5kg of dive weights and 9.7kg of mixed rubbish! Taking the total weight for the day to 333.5kg!!
