Volunteers in action at the beach clean-up project at Hellshire Bay Beach on International Coastal Clean-up (ICC) Day, September 16, 2017. This project, led by the Urban Development Corporation, saw over 1,500 mostly young volunteers participating to clear debris from the beach and capture data on the items collected. International Beach Clean-up Day is an initiative of Ocean Conservancy and is the largest global volunteer effort geared toward ocean health. Last year a total of 273 bags of non-recyclable garbage weighing 1812.6 kilogrammes were collected at the clean-up site, while recyclable garbage amounted to 229 bags weighing 1145.1 kilogrammes. This was achieved by 1,089 volunteers from community groups, schools, government and non-governmental organisations who supported the project.
