All the recyclables found on Clean Up Australia Day

SBCRA and Lane Cove West Residents Association joined forces for Clean up Australia Day on 3 March.

We had 32 enthusiastic volunteers who helped clean up in the bushland areas surrounding Stringy Bark Creek, Batten Reserve, Moore St, Hands Quarry and along the bushland corridor as far as the old Shell Petrol Station on Epping Rd.
The amount of rubbish collected was extensive including takeaway coffee cups, hundreds of plastic bags, items of clothing and shoes, snack wrappers, cigarette packets and lighters, a television set,  car wheel rims, shopping trolleys and kids toys.
This year we concentrated on counting the recyclables which included 278 plastic bottles, 265 aluminimum cans, 163 glass containers – a total of 706 recyclables.  Have a look at what we collected in these photos.
