Bare Witness Part 2: Tallying the Trash

  • 115 The Manse Road Myocum, NSW, 2481 Australia (map)

Did you know that a team of cleaners are paid to get rid of all the litter in Byron Bay before the sun rises each day?

A lot of this waste still makes its way to our drains and waterways, often ending up in the ocean, especially when it's raining! We see the solution as stopping litter at it's souce, rather than cleaning it up post-fact. That's why for our first action of Plastic Free July Mullum Cares and Positive Change for Marine Life have co-ordinated with the Byron Shire Council to divert all the litter cleaned up so we can do a REAL audit of a typical Saturday night's random discards!

Join us to sort through and audit the trash at Myocum tip after we clean the streets of Byron at 2am the night before so we can finally get a real idea about what litter is generated on a typical Saturday night in Byron and work with offenders to mitigate this issue.

Let's be a part of the solution and expose this problem, stop it at it's source and explore solutions that lead to positive outcomes and less litter in Byron and beyond!
