OFF Activities

March 3 – Clean up Austrlia Day

OFF coordinated 2 sites this year, Jinna Reserve and Kyle Williams Reserve

OFF coordinated 2 sites this year:

  • Jinna Reserve, Peakhurst Heights (Lime Kiln Bay wetlands)

61 people registered, including members of OFF, 2nd Mortdale Scout Group, Oatley Lions, and the Georges Riverkeeper (Rob Dixon), who baked and donated a large batch of delicious muffins for the volunteers

32 bags of rubbish were collected, incl 4 bags of recyclables (suitable items were removed for Return and Earn, with donation to go to EDO).

More unusual items included: Discharged fire extinguisher, Gas cylinder, 2 crab pots, 4 tyres, 1 shopping trolley, 2 traffic cones, 1 builder’s bulk bag and 30 m of heavy duty weed barrier fabric. Passers-by accepted Oatley Park brochures and several expressed interest in OFF activities.

  • Kyle Williams Reserve, Kyle Bay

32 attended including OFF members, neighbours and 1st Kyle Bay Seas Scouts. Georges River Councillors N Morte, K Landsbery and P Mahoney also joined us. 13 bags rubbish of rubbish were collected, mainly small pieces of plastic and glass.  There appeared to be less rubbish compared to 2 years ago, a welcome improvement.
