Since September 2021, we have trialled a new cleaning method on three of our popular beaches:
While most of the Port Phillip beaches are machine cleaned, over the last five months these three beaches have been carefully cleaned by hand. We have worked very closely with volunteer coastal advisory groups and beach patrol groups to establish this new regime.
What are the benefits?
We welcome your feedback
Have you noticed a difference in cleanliness at the hand cleaned beaches? We would love to hear from you. Our community survey is open until 20 February at mornpen.vic.gov.au/beachclean
Want to lend a helping hand?
Peninsula’s beach patrols are often looking for volunteers. Volunteering is an essential part of community life on the Peninsula. Volunteers benefit from the experience of giving something back through a sense of accomplishment, learning and most of all making a difference to our precious environment.
