- GOLD COAST
Our project has been in operation since March 2017, and as at the end of 2018 we had 12 bins in operation, had collected over 52km of fishing line, over 4000 hooks and 2500 bait bags/packaging!
You can see our reports at the bottom of the page. Our current 2019 data stream can be viewed live below as our volunteers continue to service the bins and input data.
Our live data feed can be grouped and sorted depending on your area of interest. Totals can be viewed at the bottom of the table. Scroll to the right to see some interesting volunteer comments (on mobile, click on the entry to open).
Oxenford Weir Bins 1 & 2The original 2 bins in this location (a 3rd bin was added in December 2017), these bins are use consistently and collect a lot of fishing tackle.
Oxenford Weir Bin 3Installed in December 2017 as an additional to the heavily used original 2 bins, this bin also collects a lot of fishing waste.
The Spit - 4 binsWe have 4 bins along the seawall at the Spit, all of which consistently yield a high amount of fishing line waste.
Currumbin Creek - 2 binsLess heavily used than the northern bins, but in prominent locations with walking traffic. Originally 3 bins, 1 was removed due to underperformance, and will be relocated.
