Help keep the Blue Holes blue

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.”
