Items including plastic and glass bottles, fast food cartons, tyres and even a discarded vacuum cleaner were among the rubbish collected by volunteers from Warrenpoint Port during a clean-up of the town’s beaches recently.

Sixty volunteers including staff, customers and their family and friends, collected more than 25 bags of rubbish from beaches between Narrow Water and Cole’s Corner which were then removed from the sites.



Speaking to Newry Times, Clare Guinness, CEO, Warrenpoint Port said, “It was a tremendous pleasure to join with dozens of other volunteers from the Port in the clean-up of the many wonderful beaches across the Warrenpoint area.

“We made a positive difference evidenced by the volume of rubbish we collected.



“Staff, customers and their families gave their free time to assist with the preservation of Carlingford Lough and help to maintain the wider port environment for current and future generations.

“We take our responsibilities as a custodian of the local marine environment very seriously and the beach clean-up was just the latest in a series of initiatives aimed at improving our local surroundings,” she added.



Representatives from Warrenpoint Port’s wide customer base, including Seatruck Ferries and Forestwood Agencies, joined in with the initiative on the day.
