“Keep our River Clean” is scheduled for the 7th December 2019.
We’re excited to announce the date for our next River Clean up event on the 7th December 2019 with the support of The Town of Bassendean and the Men’s Shed who are providing a free sausage sizzle for everyone taking part!!
Sticking to our usual format, several launch locations have been set out as outlined below and covers the Eastern corridor. You can do as short or as long as you like however we have limited the time to finish within 3 hours. The locations below are just suggestions so if you’d like to start somewhere else please do. Kayakers, walkers and dogs are all welcome and very much needed where stand up paddlers can’t access.
Sup Tonic is offering free stand up paddle board hire for experienced paddlers from Sandy Beach Reserve, Bassendean (end of West Road) where the trailer will be stationed. Booking in advance is essential.
As with all events we want to have as much fun as possible so post up your antics from the day (keep it clean, pardon the pun). Click here to view the video link attached from one of our previous clean ups showing what can be achieved when come together as a community for a great cause!
Date: Saturday 7th December 8.00 am – 12.00 pm
8.00 am: Meet at Sandy Beach Reserve, Bassendean for a briefing of the morning. The Town of Bassendean’s Recycling and Waste Officer will give us some guidance on grouping and cataloguing rubbish collected.
Next: Start from your chosen location. If you are hiring a board, then you must start from Sandy Beach Reserve, Bassendean.
11.00 am: Sort rubbish into piles for recycling or disposal at Sandy Beach Reserve. We will have a recycling expert to help us through this process.
12.00 pm: Finish for a social gathering and free sausage sizzle run by the Men’s Shed Bassendean.
