Ramblers take trash from beach, find piles of dog poo

BOTTLES, cigarette butts and cardboard pieces filled the 14 white and yellow bags of rubbish collected by the Hervey Bay Ramblers from Point Vernon's foreshore.

But a line was drawn in the sand - the "disappointing find" of bagged dog faeces left in piles underneath trees were left, to be reported on Monday, co-ordinator George Gamble said.

 

"There was one spot where there was about 10 bags," he said.

 

While many of the walking group's senior members volunteered their services as part of Clean Up Australia Day yesterday, 10-year-old Cooper Beale also joined in to help out.

Mr Gamble said the team scrounged in bushes to pick-up trash.

While the area looked clean, heaps of rubbish was found by looking more closely he said.
