NSW Storms Flush Out Litter

201505 gosfordVolunteers from Macmasters Beach Surf Club spent their morning on Wednesday the 6th of May surveying foreshore areas for litter density. The volunteers covered specific areas from Kincumber Creek and Empire Bay through to Yattalunga.

The survey identified areas that had reasonably low levels of litter, to areas that included very high levels of debris. In one particular area that was surveyed, over 100 oyster trays were found, which is unfortunately a familiar story for Clean4Shore volunteers.

The Clean4Shore program has already conducted countless litter cleanups within the Gosford area, removing hundreds of kilos of debris from local waterways. This survey will help the program participants focus their efforts, and will allow them to target priority sites for future foreshore cleanup activities.
