Volunteer to help clean up beach: Tangaroa Blue

TANGAROA Blue has called for people to register sites for this month’s WA Beach Clean Up.

Into its 11th year, organisers of the annual event hope more than 1500 volunteers will help collect litter from beaches and rivers across WA on October 10 or 11.

“Last year 137 beaches across WA were cleaned up as part of the event, with 87,159 pieces of rubbish, weighing over 5600kg removed from our coastline,” coordinator Renee Mouritz said.

“Our aim this year is to further grow this event, getting more people involved and even more beaches cleaned up.

“Volunteers are invited to register as an individual or as a group and nominate a beach or stretch of coastline they will clean up over the clean-up weekend.

“All materials, volunteer insurance and logistical support will be provided – all we need is lots of energy and many hands to help remove marine debris from the coast.”

Joondalup Rotary Club David Garnsworthy said the club had nominated Mullaloo Beach again this year, and would clean up on both days.
