Visitors to the Blue Holes along WA’s south coast can do their bit to help the marine environment, thanks to an initiative by the Nornalup Residents and Ratepayers Association.
A sign fixed to the old school bus stop on the corner of Station Road and Bellanger Road, Nornalup, reads: “Help keep the Blue Holes blue.”
Beachgoers are invited to take a Keep Australia Beautiful bag to Bellanger Beach (Blue Holes) to collect flotsam and jetsam and other non-organic waste and leave the bag inside the bus stop on their return.
The rubbish will be collected periodically and taken to the Peaceful Bay tip.
NRRA Vice-President Philip Powell said: “Beachgoers may have been reluctant to pick up rubbish because of the inconvenience of where to dispose of it, as there has never been a bin at the beach entrance. But now that has become easier.”
