Clean4Shore completes Patonga clean-up plan

The Clean4shore team was back at Patonga, tackling the pergola and plastic road barriers at Dark Corner beach on July 27.

The pergola was dismantled and the red plastic road barriers freed from the sand.

The barge was used to tow the barriers out to sea and back around to the boat ramp.

All material from this site was then loaded into the skip bins.

Juno Point to Spring Beach was then explored with larger items including pallets, cladding, plastic removed.

A full bag of small litter including small polystyrene pieces was loaded on board.

Croppy Beach also had small and larger items collected.

On a quick stopover at Little Wobby, the team met local residents who had more items to be loaded on board.

"Across the river and finally into sunshine on this spectacular foreshore which had plenty of small litter present within the timber flood debris," said coordinator Mr Graham Johnston.

"Larger items were collected including plastic, nylon ski tubes, aluminium cladding, treated pine, tyres plastic drums and buckets.

"The creek on Gunyah Point had a large mattress requiring a big team effort to lift and load onto the barge."

An air conditioner unit, an old lounge and a large piece of aluminium cladding were also collected.

"A second full load of debris returned to Patonga and was loaded into the skip bins.

"This clean up completes the Patonga section of our clean up plan.

"Much lower swells are required to venture out to Lion Island and Flathead beach at the Patonga headland," Mr Johnston said.
