Adopt-a-Bin

If you're looking for an opportunity to volunteer on a regular basis and contribute to 
keeping our rivers clean and wildlife safe from discarded fishing line and related waste then this is for you!

We are looking for dedicated volunteers to empty their local Fishing Line Bin on a weekly basis.

We will provide equipment and training and you will be registered with Department of Parks and Wildlife's volunteer program. You will be covered by insurance and be rewarded for accruing volunteer hours.

To see if there is an available bin that you would like to 'adopt' near you, see table below or map. Please note that more than one volunteer can 'adopt' a particular bin - in fact, it makes things easier when people go away on holidays!

If you are keen to participate, please contact us with your preferred Fishing Line Bin location at community@dpaw.wa.gov.au.
