As the event was supported by Randwick Council we’re pretty stoked we got in 4 hours of scavenging despite the rain and broke some records of participation, weight and butts collected! We also had over 200kg of pre-loved threads, books and all kinds of toys and knick-knacks that were donated by the community to trade for trash!
301kg of litter were collected on Saturday. This equated to 8 full wheelie bins - 195kg of waste and 106kg of recycling. Amongst this were 7,681 cigarette butts and 5,816 pieces of sea glass that washed up smooth from all the tumbling around in the sand. All this rain has bought an insane amount of junk from our city streets into our beautiful bays and beaches! But luckily we had 145 pairs of hands there to pick it up!
