The first Seabin on Parramatta River was installed at d'Albora Marinas Cabarita Point today.

d'Albora was thrilled to provide a suitable location along the River for the HP sponsored Seabin.

Pete Ceglinski, CEO and Co-founder of The Seabin Project, creator of the Seabin was on hand to install and demonstrate the effectiveness of the floating debris interception device.

d'Albora CEO Suzanne Davies said "As part of our environmental strategy, d'Albora is committed to working with and supporting businesses that positively contribute to keeping our waterways clean".

The Seabin Project was founded by Pete Ceglinksi and Andrew Turton in 2015. Each Seabin is capable of removing up to 90,000 plastic bags, 50,000 plastic bottles and 35,700 disposable cups each year. The most common items caught in the bin are cigarette butts and micro plastics as small as 2mm that pose the biggest threat to marine life.

The bin at Cabarita Point is expected to catch 1.5kg of marine trash every day (1/2 tonne per year). "It is great to see the bin in action; everything from straws, cigarette butts and plastic bags were caught. I was astounded by the amount of marine trash collected in a 20-minute period" said Davies.

As part of the installation the Department of Roads and Maritime Services Environmental team have volunteered to survey the marine trash collected to gain a better understanding of pollutants entering the Harbour.
