A large amount of rubbish was collected by volunteers during the Binningup Beach clean-up on Sunday, 17 October.

Some of the collected items included: 

  • Approx. 1000 pieces of hard plastic. 
  • Approx. 1000 pieces of soft plastic. 
  • Fishing gear including rods, floats, crates, fishing line, hooks, sinkers and netting. 
  • More than 200 plastic bottles including fuel and solvents.

  • More than 100 shoes, including thongs.
