Clean4Shore continues to secure floating logs

Large floating logs still pose a treat to boating on the Hawkesbury River, according to Clean4shore co-ordinator Mr Graham Johnston.

The service was continuing to secure logs, dragging them to a safer location.

He was joined by Ocean Beach Surf Club ventured out from Patonga on Friday.

"Young rookies were involved in their Duke of Edinburgh's Award program, with peer support from Oliver and proactive supervision from Louise and Kerrie," he said.

"Our first task was to dig out the large plastic drum from the sandy beach around from Dark Corner.

"It was a difficult task with the saw and a tow from Simon needed to remove the drum.

"Larger pieces of aluminium cladding are scattered all along this headland.

"The polystyrene washed out and was breaking up behind the rocky foreshores.

"Crossing the river, plenty of logs and debris was floating seaward.

"Drums, buckets and polystyrene were removed from the water.

"The small beach east of Flint and Steel had four very full bags of small litter - mainly hard plastics, balls, plastic bottles and polystyrene collected - and larger items including a foam mattress, larger drums and buckets.

"The surging swell made loading difficult and, with this swell surge increasing, access to Flint and Steel was deemed too big a risk.

"Around the corner towards Hungry Beach, another mattress was recovered from the rocks, plus a large road barrier.

"Hungry Beach also had larger pot, buckets and small litter removed with a large truck tyre on a rim lifted from the water.

"Moving into Cowan Creek, small litter was removed from Fishermans beach with a large black piece of vinel sheeting cut free from under the rocks."

The boat, in a sudden rain storm, returned to Patonga with a full load.

The 340 kilograms of rubbish was transported to Woy Woy tip.
