Energy company heads to Exmouth for beach clean

VOLUNTEERS from EDF Energy last week gave Sandy Bay beach a spruce up in a bid to chart washed-up and dropped debris.

VOLUNTEERS from EDF Energy last week gave Sandy Bay beach a spruce up in a bid to chart washed-up and dropped debris.

Some nine workers gathered litter in an attempt to glean vital information about the type of rubbish found on beaches.

The information will be used as part of a study run by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) to target manufacturers.

The group weighed the total amount of rubbish found and passed the results on to the MCS.

EDF Energy hoped the clean-up would help educate the volunteers on the effect waste has on the coast.

EDF Energy teamed up with the MCS and Devon Cliffs Holiday Park in 2008 to adopt the beach.
