Special ed students help clean up
Seventeen students from the special education unit at Brisbane Water Secondary College spent four hours clearing waste off the foreshores of Saratoga Island, Waterfall Bay, Pelican Island and Woy Woy jetty on Thursday, March 9.
Small items such as plastic bottles and glass beer bottles were targeted and removed during the trip.
However, three large floating oyster platforms were also retrieved from Waterfall Bay and deposited on the pontoon at the Woy Woy Bay Oyster Association sheds.
Though Pelican Island was the target of the Clean-up Australia group's efforts the previous week, organiser Mr Graham Johnson claimed that there were still large quantities of litter within the mangroves which needed attention.
Mr Johnson gave thanks to oyster grower Simon Funnel for providing his barge for the joint project under the EMS Grant, in addition to the Brisbane Waters National Parks staff for their assistance in the speedy removal of the collected rubbish.
A total of 31 bags of rubbish were collected during the morning.
