RUBBISH TO BE REMOVED FROM STOCKTON BEACH OVER COMING WEEKS

Work has begun to remove tonnes of rubbish from Stockton Beach, unearthed by erosion last month.

An excavator will take the waste 10 to 15 metres back from the shoreline – where it will be stored until a long-term solution is found.

“Once the waste is excavated we’ll then back fill with clean material and put in place structures to protect the site from further erosion,” Darren Cleary from Hunter Water says.

In the meantime, the public is being urged to steer clear of the area.
