We had two classes who walked down to the beach near our school. The grade 6's started and one end and the grade 5's at the other. It's a long beach with houses and roads behind it. The most common rubbish type was plastic by a long way with cigarette butts one of the most common items. The beach is surrounded by houses and parks so a lot of the rubbish was probably escaping from bins or washing down stormwater drains. It was good to grab it before it made it's way into the water and out to sea!
