There is some exciting news on the litter in the Cooks River front.
Canterbury Council, in conjunction with Sydney Water, are placing a floating litter boom across the River at Boat Harbour, Hurlstone Park.

This boom will catch and trap most of the litter coming down river. It will be emptied regularly by Sydney Water using a boat. It will be very interesting to see how much difference this makes to the blight of floating litter.
It also does not diminish the urgent need for a national Container Deposit Scheme, as nearly 8 billion plastic bottles go to landfill in Australia each year!!
