Rockingham tackling fishing waste

Thanks to securing a $20,000 RecfishWest grant through the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD), River Guardians is now actively seeking to install more Reel it in bins at popular coastal fishing locations.

The recognisable bins have recently been installed at Bent Street and Point Kennedy boat ramps, and Mercy Point Jetty. These new bins complement the bins that were installed in Marmion Marine Park (North Beach Jetty and Hillarys Boat Harbour) in 2019, and more recently, down in Busselton and Bunbury.

DBCA is also currently holding talks with the Cities of Joondalup and Wanneroo and will be installing more bins along the coastline in these areas over the coming months. Watch this space!

If you would like to adopt one of these new coastal bins or would simply like to know where the Reel it in bins have been installed to date, check out the locations map on our River Guardians website.
