‘Bag waste’ plea after beach clean
12:00pm Saturday 5th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
THE tide is turning on litter dumped on Manningtree beach.
Six volunteers came together to clean up the stretch of beach on Sunday as part of the Marine Conservation Society event.
Items collected included crisp and sweet packets, plastic bottles and cans.
Councillor Lee Lay-Flurrie said: “The survey recorded 121 items – the four main items being drinks cans, plastic bottles, foam insulation and rope.
“People need to bag it and bin it.”
