Last Sunday volunteers collected 460kg of rubbish from Sandy Creek. The Casuarina Coastal Reserve Landcare Group has organised this annual clean up for about five years now.
The good news is that the NT has Container Deposit Legislation has made a difference and there are a lot less aluminum cans, plastic bottles and plastic bags in the mix. The Clean Up was perfectly timed with the first big rain on Sunday night, the group stopped a lot of rubbish getting into the mangroves and Harbour.
