The weather held off to allow another successful Coastal Warriors clean up at Shelly Beach in Port Macquarie on June 7.
Sixty-six volunteers trawled the beach and found a mixture of items.
Ironically, it wasn't the beach itself that was the problem area.
"The beach itself was quite clean but there was lots of litter found in the bush and along the walking track," said Philippa Busch from the environmental group Coastal Warriors Mid North Coast.
"We found quite a number of glass bottles (214) but cigarettes are still the most common item with a total of 879 found," said Miss Busch.
Cigarette butts are the most littered item in the world.
They are also the most collected item at every clean up by Coastal Warriors Mid North Coast.
There was some good news.
"There was a noticeable decrease in straws and plastic cutlery found compared to clean ups a couple of years ago," she said.
The next clean up is on August 3 at Lighthouse Beach in Port Macquarie. To volunteer contact Coastal Warriors Mid North Coast via Facebook or you can register on the day.
