"On Clean Up Australia Day 2009 a team of voluteers divers from the Sub Aquatics Dive Centre and a team of local volunteers removed over 500 bottles, broken glass and assorted rubbish from the beach floor at Lady Martin’s Beach, Point Piper the beach floor.
The removal of such a large and lethal quantity of dumped bottles within metres of swimmers has rendered one of Sydney Harbour’s picturesque and beloved public beaches safe again, re-confirming the vital work of Clean Up Australia even in the most seemingly pristine of locations."
