Brisbane residents have come up with a clever hack to help clean up Australian beaches!

A member of a Redcliffe Peninsula community Facebook group shared a picture of stacked baskets on a beach, along with a sign asking beach walkers to use the baskets to collect litter before returning them to the stand.

It has been reported that the brilliant idea originated in Florida with the sign listing a phone number for a waste collection agency, and Aussie social media users loved the idea!

The photo was captioned, “What an awesome idea.”

One person suggested asking local cafes to be the collection point for baskets and entice people to return them full of rubbish in return for an ice cream or cold drink – love this idea.

“We so need that here. The amount of plastic I pick up on a regular walk is ridiculous,” another user replied.
