Keep our Beaches Clean

Content Image

You may have seen some pictures of our beautiful beaches (Henley in particular) looking not so welcoming recently. It's all of our responsibility to ensure we leave our beaches just as we found them. take any rubbish with you, clean up after your dog, use sustainable options (such as reusable containers) where possible and say no to plastic bags or drinking straws.

We have public bins (part of 1,000 public bins in our city-wide network) located along the beach – from Semaphore Park to West Beach – with some bins located on the beach at Tennyson. In high traffic locations, such as Henley Square, there are multiple bins available and over the summer months we increase the number of bins to help to manage litter. We also have a Beach Team who visit our beaches daily to check that they are safe and clean.

At the end of a busy day, the bins may be full. Don't add your rubbish to the pile, look for another one or take it with you.

Our beaches are a beautiful and much-loved part of Charles Sturt and our natural environment and we encourage all beach users – whether you stop by for a quick coffee, or stay all day - to keep our beaches clean. By doing our part, we leave our beaches clean and safe for our community, our wildlife and their habitats.
