IFS staff clean up fishing sites

Some of the rubbish collected as part of Clean up Australia day from Lake Sorell

The Inland Fisheries Service participated in Business Clean Up Australia Day yesterday. We focussed on Angler Access sites along the River Derwent. The section from the Bridgewater Bridge to Gretna.

We also cleaned up the Dago Point campground and Mountain Creek shore campsites at Lake Sorell.

Anglers appear to be keeping the fishing locations relatively clean.  The road side verges, where cars can pull over,  provide focal points for people to drop off garbage.

We collected numerous tyres along with household rubbish. Staff enjoyed the pleasant weather and the opportunity to try and make a difference to the litter problem.
