Darwin Harbour Clean Up 2017

The eighth Darwin Harbour Clean-Up was held at various locations around Darwin Harbour on Wednesday 19 July 2017.

As well as removing rubbish from the waters and coastline of the Harbour, the clean-up aims to raise awareness about the effects of rubbish entering our waterways and will encourage everyone to ‘bin it or take it with you’.

A total of 4.2 tonnes was collected most of which was made up of heavy items such as 27 car tyres, a flat screen tv, mattresses and an arm chair. Over 150 people this year were working across 10 land and 4 water-based sites, with 9 boats around Darwin Harbour.
