Clean-up program 'uncertain' after trailer failure
The Clean4shore marine clean-up program faces "an uncertain future", according to co-ordinator Mr Graham Johnston.
A car trailer used by the group to transport rubbish to Woy Woy tip has rusted and is unrepairable.
Limited funding and an uncertain future meant the organisation was unable to buy a replacement, "leaving a gap in our ability to move the bulkier items", he said.
"The mover of many larger loads over the past five years was retired to the metal recyclers as extensive rust was unrepairable for this month's registration."
Mr Johnston said the trailer had been a worthwhile investment for Clean4shore carting 37 vessels in the past year, but regular immersion into the salt water had taken its toll.
