Easter Weekend Beach Clean-up

A few locals and a couple of holidaymakers joined in, in yet another successful Witsand beach clean-up on Sunday, 16 April.

Below is a list of most common waste collected during the clean-up. This should give you a good indication of items that are of local concern.

  1. Bottle caps (plastic) – 62
  2. Plastic bits – 55
  3. Food wrappers – 50
  4. Other plastic bags – 36
  5. Other plastic or foam packaging – 35
  6. Straws – 33
  7. Beverage bottles (plastic) – 31

If we dispose of our litter in the correct manner, we would have cleaner beaches and healthier oceans.

Let’s set the example for one another by keeping our beaches rubble free!
