To participate in the recycle for Scotland week September we’ve been sponsored by Zero Waste Dunbar to install recycling bins at the harbour. Our Harbour Master asked for volunteers to assist with a coastal litter survey and pick. The Marine Litter Survey results from 23 people collecting for about an hour show that they gathered the following....

Cigarette butts 245 - Rubber gloves 213 - Tin Cans 157 - 

Plastic bottles 138 - Foil Food wrappers 67 - Cardboard / paper 28 -

Metal objects 12 - Fishing tackle 10 - Broken creel parts 9 - Dog poo bags 8 -

This exercise may help increase awareness of the issue and help develop a strategy to reduce litter.
