Thank you, thank you, thank you! to all those dedicated volunteers who regularly clean up our beaches from the rubbish people leave behind or throw into the Indian Ocean.
It is an utter disgrace that there are so many people who believe others will clean up after them, as we see also at markets, festivals, concerts etc. where people simply walk away and leave food and drink containers as if it is none of their business to dispose of it properly in amply supplied rubbish bins.
I spotted a small group of Tangaroa Blue Conservation Volunteers at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach this Sunday morning. Well done!
It seems no one in Fremantle wants to take responsibility for taking away this piece of floor cover left there after a Fringe Festival event inside the Whalers Tunnel. The eyesore has now been laying in our prime tourist destination below the Roundhouse for two weeks, but because it’s not in a rubbish bin and can’t be swept up by the motorised sweeper the City of Fremantle just leaves it there.
Of course one would have expected more professionalism from the event organisors and for them take their rubbish with them after the event. Disappointing!
Fremantle has been full with people enjoying the festive season holidays and a very long weekend and Bathers Beach has become popular again, so why has the place been looking like a mess since New Year’s eve when there was a DJ dance event on the northern side of the beach?
We had nearly 600 visitors in the Round House yesterday, and the J Shed area is a short cut for many tourists to get to and from the Maritime Museum, but this is what they have to put up with because the City of Fremantle once again has not cleaned up the rubbish left there.
Once or twice a week cleaning of prime tourist destinations is not enough and not good enough. This has to be a daily routine, even-or even more so-during the festive season when more people come to Fremantle.
