Evans Head residents want their beaches clean, thank you!

EVANS Head Residents for Sustainable Development have launched a campaign to get their beaches cleaned up.

The group have said on their Facebook page that as the Richmond Valley Council's beach work comes to an end, a contamination problem still exists.

"Oyster shell, broken glass, very dark sand containing organic matter, etc. Council seems to have admitted that the problem is not over," a post on the page reads.

"It is time for someone to get a grip and fix the problem and stop stuffing around at the margins.

"The more this goes on without any effective leadership, the greater the need for an independent investigation into what has happened at Evans Head and just how much this is costing the community including the tourism industry.

"The EPA and the government department which commissioned the dredging seem to be missing in action.

"Perhaps the community might like to contact the local State Member Chris Gulaptis and ask him what steps the State government is proposing to take to fix this problem."
