Mechanical beach cleaning commenced

Yanchep resident Clare Sharp submitted written questions about litter on beaches to the February 2 Wanneroo City Council meeting.

The City’s acting assets director Grant Chettleburgh said mechanical beach cleaning took place in Quinns Rocks fortnightly during summer and monthly in winter. “Mechanical beach cleaning commenced in January 2016 at Yanchep Lagoon – this location will now be serviced on the same frequency,” he said.

“Other locations are litter-picked on a reactive basis as required.”

Mr Chettleburgh said the City would consider increasing cleaning locations as more areas were developed.
