Drainage Net success at City of Kwinana


When it comes to dealing with the world’s waste problem, Melville Bin Hire believes we all need to be innovative, fast-acting and committed. The City of Kwinana has done an excellent job of demonstrating that this year, with the installation of drainage nets made of heavy rope in Henley Reserve.


The nets have collected a whopping 370kg of debris since March 2018 – waste that would have otherwise ended polluting the nature reserve.   According to the City of Kwinana’s new post https://www.kwinana.wa.gov.au/our-city/news/Pages/-Drainage-Nets-Cleaning-up-Henley-Reserve-.aspx the collected debris “consisted of food wrappings, drink bottles, sand and tree leaves.”


The nets are designed to minimise risk to local wildlife and has noticeably helped to reduce rubbish levels in the area already. As such, the City of Kwinana is planning to add more drainage nets to the area.


Once the rubbish is collected from the nets, it is taken to a sorting facility where the green waste can be separated from other non-recyclable trash and turned into mulch for use in landscaping. Recyclable plastics and other materials are also sent to the appropriate facilities, reducing the impact on landfill. You can find out more information about the City of Kwinana’s drainage nets here: https://omny.fm/shows/perth-tonight/city-of-kwinana-nets-collect-370kg-of-debris-from


The team here at Melville Bin Hire  encourages other Perth councils to adopt the drainage net strategy for their drains and waterways. What a great way to help reduce the impact of litter on our local reserves.


The proper disposal of rubbish would greatly help to reduce the need for measures such as the City of Kwinana’s ingenious drainage nets. We should all take responsibility for our own waste and rubbish disposal. On a small scale, this means not throwing rubbish out of car windows – which is how rubbish ends up in our waterways in the first place.
