The clean beach after 2 hours of cleaning- a job well done
Where: Southern District Shek O Back Beach- Saturday 18 October 2014 from 10am
23 participants including students, teachers, family, and Glenealy alumni
2 hours duration including briefing, clean up and learning debrief
Total # bags = 10
Estimate weight of trash bagged = 23kg
There was a lot more trash that had been collected by locals and gathered in
baskets, so we focused on the trash remaining on the beach. Volumes of wood
and other building materials were found, although we moved to one area and
excluded from the cleanup statistics. The intention being that locals will reuse in
other construction projects in the village.
Very few aluminum cans – assume higher rate of recycling?
Polystyrene – impossible to remove from the beach
Single use plastic for take away food or drinks
Lolly pop sticks
Plastic bottles – water and other storage for example detergent
Small dead fish!
Coca Cola bottle tops
Thank you to all that attended the beach clean up
We are looking forward already to our next challenge.
