Seaside Scavenge to give value to trash

A pop-up seaside market to be set up at Town Beach in Port Macquarie tomorrow, where people can trade the trash they've picked up for a number of goods.

A host of local businesses have gotten involved in supporting the Seaside Scavenge, running from 9am to 1pm.

It comes in an attempt to attract more to get involved, those being rewarded for helping in cleanup efforts.

For every 10 pieces collected a token will be obtained, able to be exchanged for a reward.

Seaside Scavenge CEO Anna-Jane Link says despite recent cleanups by the Coastal Warriors, there's always more rubbish around.

Participants will head down around 9am where they'll be given gloves and a bag, before heading out to begin collection.
