First from Yunderup to Jenna Island at Furnissdale and then he decided to do a second clean-up on the river at Dwellingup in the Lane Poole Reserve.

Not content with those efforts, Mr Sewell then joined 14 other eager volunteers at Samphire Cove, where around 63 bags of rubbish, old tyres, a large steel frame and many more discarded items were collected from roadside verges, parks and foreshore areas.

Clean-up co-ordinators Friends of Samphire Cove Nature Reserve thanked all volunteers who took part and supporters of the Clean Up Peel Waterways.

These included the City of Mandurah, Friends of Rivers Peel, Parks and Wildlife, Peel Harvey Catchment Council and the Shire of Murray.
