Hi Angus. 3 separate beaches with a total of about a 200 metre stretch. These beaches are a notorious plastic dump. We had a storm last weekend and a lot of the small stuff was washed back out to sea...so I could have collected a lot more! I came out to the Island specifically to do this. So yes, 6 hours, one person, 4 thousand tops! I now want to investigate the very best ways of recycling them. Thank you for your comment.

wow Simon, extraordinary so many tops. Were these collected on many beaches? I am a little stunned that these were all collected in 6 hours. Quite incredible.
