Fifty-eight tonnes! That’s the amount of litter removed from the catchment through Georges Riverkeeper’s partnership with Corrective Services NSW and local member councils in 2020-21. It's the equivalent of preventing 17 full garbage trucks of litter  from causing further damage across the river. The number of beaches, parks, mangroves and creek-lines where litter is removed through this program has increased, to 234, as has the number of buses going out to conduct this important community service work. You can read more about Georges Riverkeeper’s achievements last financial year in the Annual Report 2020/21.
