ON Thursday morning, after the recent floods some schools were closed and instead of staying at home pupils assisted Toti Conservancy to clean 300 metres of Doonside beach of plastic.

“Over 30 bags were collected and sorted for recycling and the council removed the bags within hours,” Conservancy chairperson, Angus Pyke said.

On Monday, October 16, Conservancy’s Corinne Winson reported that beaches are still a mess in places, and more washes up with each high tide. On Monday, Winson moved lots of bottles, and litter above the high tide mark.

“South of the river mouth is awful as the cleaners have not crossed over yet, and all the way over Chain Rocks is bad,” she added.
