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 and audit their local fishing line bin on a weekly basis.

We will provide equipment and training and you will be registered with the Parks and Wildlife Service 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

If you are keen to participate, please contact us with your preferred fishing line bin location at community@dbca.wa.gov.au.
