The Project involves distributing fishing tackle bins across the Gold Coast in hotspot locations where we find LOTS of littered fishing line, bait bags and other fishing tackle.
Current locations are: + Gold Coast Seaway+ Oxenford Weir+ Tallebudgera creek + Currumbin creek
This Project is run by volunteers and all bins are adopted by local community members. By adopting a bin you will be responsible for a minimum of once a week maintenance, which involves cleaning the bin, emptying the bin, recording what was in the bin and requesting any maintenance needed. You may work in a team with other bin adoptees or by yourself, that means you will also be responsible for ensuring the bin is still maintained if you can not do it (e.g. sickness, holidays or unforeseen issues that may prevent you from maintaining your assigned bin). You will also be responsible for following safety guidelines and wearing appropriate personal protection equipment (e.g. gloves).
Please note that we are currently seeking volunteers who would be willing to adopt a bin at current locations. We intend on expanding the Project to other hotspot locations and suggest for you to provide information on where more bins are needed.
