In January 2019, the City installed Western Australia's first Seabin at the Port Coogee Marina (northern corner, close to Dome Cafe) to capture marine litter in the local area. The Seabin is a floating rubbish bin designed to be installed in the water of marinas, yacht clubs and ports.
The Seabin can catch an estimated 1.5kg of floating rubbish per day, including coffee cups, plastic bottles, bait bags, cigarette butts, straws, balloons and micro-plastics that are only 2mm in size. The Seabin also collects detergents, fuels and oils.
Water is sucked in from the surface and passes through a catch bag inside the Seabin. The water is then pumped back into the marina leaving litter and debris trapped in the catch bag to be disposed of properly. The City will be monitoring the amount and type of litter collected and feeding this data into the Seabin Global Ambassador Program.
The Seabin is only part of the solution to marine debris. The City of Cockburn encourages everyone to do their bit to dispose of their waste responsibly to keep our waterways pristine.
