More about BAG SMART

The picture below shows the debris collected during the Cape to Cape Beach Clean Up at Ellensbrook Beach on Dec 6, 2005. Your task is to work out the types and numbers of debris collected. Move your mouse carefully over the picture (no need to click on anything) and the type of material (e.g. Plastic, glass, aluminium) and a description of the item will show up. Some of the items are quite small so move slowly and carefully. Record your results and answer the questions.
