    Dear Helen,

    I think we need a Take In, Take Out policy for waste and vigilance on the part of Randwick Council to ensure compliance. Waste items purchased at local shops should be deposited back and recycled appropriately. Then we would ONLY be dealing with stormwater pollution which is a major problem for Congwong Bay in particular. To fix this Randwick Council need to put more work into education about drains, the Councils in the Botany Bay Catchment need to work cooperatively and Sydney Water needs to come on board.

    La Perouse Explorers conducts tours and watertesting in Congwong Bay and works with other groups and individuals on general cleanups. The next cleanup will be Cleanup Australia Day (the first Sunday in March). As you say, you can pick up litter one day and a similar amount will be there the following day. Until senior managers in Council and National Parks get serious about the problem this is the best we can do.
