Back before we were all plunged into lockdown, a keen group of Mornington Peninsula volunteers set to work picking up what too many of us simply drop on the ground.

Organised by PILOT Body Corporate, Clean Up Australia Day at Mornington Park on March 1 saw about 35 people from across the Peninsula make their way over to Royal Beach and Fishermans Beach and proceed to collect all the rubbish they could carry. In two short hours they filled eight large bags – and not all of the 150kg they collected was litter: two of the bags were filled with bottles and other recyclables.

One happy youngster, pictured, found a $5 note, but for the most part cigarette butts, plastic food wrappers and packaging, and countless microplastic pieces made up the bulk of the rubbish.

Luke Woollard, from PILOT Body Corporate, was delighted with the response and said it showed what can be achieved when people work together to make a positive difference to our planet. “It was a fun day and the community spirit was out in full force,” Luke said. “It demonstrates that simple actions can have a big positive impact on our environment.”

Luke said highlights of the day were meeting a diverse group of community members – from scientists and accountants to yoga teachers and school-age children – and giving the official participation certificates to the younger team members. “We’re proud to have taken part in Clean Up Australia Day,” he said. “Thank you to everyone for taking part.”

Founded by Ian Kiernan AO in 1993, Clean Up Australia is one of the country’s most recognised and trusted environmental organisations, inspiring and empowering communities to clean up, fix up and conserve our environment. More than 17.7 million Australians have participated in a Clean Up activity over the past 30 years.
