On 16 August 2022, with the assistance of the Shark Spotters, we installed litter nets on 8 strategic stormwater drains along the Sea Point coastline as identified by our own recognizance and through consultations with the City of Cape Town Coastal Management.
These nets will be cleaned and maintained by our team of 2 people four days a week. We are committing to the ongoing management of the litter nets and cleaning of beaches. These nets were dutifully made and installed by the legendary Shark Spotters from upcycled redundant anchovy nets.
Over the first 24 hours, the team retrieved 17 bags of waste from the beach and nets. Waste collected will be recycled as much as possible. Unrecyclable plastic will be sent to CRDC to be processed into building aggregate and the remainder will be processed by the City. We thank the City of Cape Town for their support.
