Kingborough Alliance: Reducing waste in the marine and coastal environment

Members of SLiK have been busy cleaning up the coast line from Kingston Beach to Woodbridge since this project started in March 2014. Along the way they have collected heaps of rubbish and have been documenting the types of items they have been finding - loads of cigarette butts, plastic wrap from straws (plus plastic straws), wrappers, cans, bottles, plastic cups, wipes and dog poo bags (filled and unfilled). 

SLiK will then monitor  and analyse the types of waste collected and then provide information back in a way that will raise awareness about waste and motivate behaviour change resulting in reduced waste, threat to species in the coastal environment, and increased community engagement in its ongoing care. The project will cover the coastal area

if you are walking along a beach and you pick up some rubbish, use the Waste Data Collection form to let SLiK know what you have collected.

they will be bringing their findings to Love Living Locally on Sunday 15 March at the Kingborough civic Centre.
