Put a lid on it!

This source reduction plan was designed by participants in Rockingham during a workshop funded through Keep Australia Beautiful Council WA Litter Prevention Grants. There is an issue at Kennedy Bay Boat Ramp with litter being being blown out of the council plastic bins with the sea breeze. It is important to address this issue as it will reduce the amount of rubbish on the surrounding beach and in the dunes, it will also result in less pollution in the ocean. The suggested source reduction plan involves talking to the council about sourcing heavier bins with lids that are unable to blow open. The success of this source reduction plan will be measured during the 2015 WA Beach Clean-up event.
