Rubbish removed from Woy Woy Bays area

The Clean4Shore marine clean-up group removed rubbish from the Woy Woy Bays area and near the Spike Milligan Bridge on Friday, December 3.

On a bright sunny day, the barge headed into Woy Woy Bay.

"Venturing into Waterfall Bay for the first time in many years, the sheer beauty of this waterway had the team wondering if we were in total wilderness," said coordinator Mr Graham Johnston.

"A small beach on the right bank had an old derelict vessel moored very close to the foreshore.

"Surprisingly bulk litter was on the foreshore behind the vessel."

The team of Year 12 and Year 7 students from Narara Valley High School explored the waterfall and rocky end to this bay, finding an old inflatable vessel, and a perfect view from on top of the rocks.

"The beach and track on the left bank had a large mattress removed plus a bag of old bottles and cans from poor camping practices.

"The mangroves adjacent to the Spike Milligan Bridge within Woy Woy Bay had the usual residential and fisherman's litter.

"However, more concerning was the illegal dump site of carpet and underlay. This was loaded into the barge by the team."

Favourable tides allowed access to the mangroves in front of Woy Woy Station.

"Commuters applauded the students' efforts as 12 very full bags plus larger items were removed from 200 metres of mangroves.

"Laying in tall grass adjacent to the rail bridge was coiled plastic pipe, two inches thick, possibly unused from a previous underground project.

"This was recoiled and carried onto the barge with a local landscaper contacted for recycling.

"Our last site was the northern tip of Pelican Island where oyster baskets and small litter was collected.

"It was a very full barge that returned to Gosford Sailing Club, the students again active on the offload into the Clean4shore car trailer.

"Pizza for lunch then off to Woy Woy Tip where 600 kilos was deposited at the landfill site."
