Environment and sustainability
A volunteer group who meet once a month to remove waste from the 3196 beaches, Chelsea, Bonbeach and Edithvale.
3196 Beach Patrol welcomes everyone, young, old, from within the 3196 postcode and outside the postcode. We meet on the last Sunday of every month. Our offical start time is 9.30am for the hour till 10.30am but there is always someone at the selected beach by 9am. We rotate between the three beaches so it always pays to sign up at beachpatrol.com.au or check out the facebook page chelseabeachpatrol. When we clean the beach, bags are provided as we weigh all the waste and there are also some gloves.
All the rubbish we collect is weighed and sorted and the information goes to helping us show the council that we need a container deposit scheme, where nurdles are coming from or the number of cig buts in the bay. It also means that our beautiful beaches are that little bit cleaner and safer for all the generations to use.
