Robina Town Centre is protecting local waterways and beaches through a partnership with Ocean Protect.
Ocean Protect is dedicated to reducing the amount of pollution and waste that ends up in our waterways and oceans through the development of stormwater treatment assets, which stop pollution at its source.
Robina Town Centre’s proactive approach to stop the flow of pollution has seen it partner with Ocean Protect to install ‘Ocean Guards’ in three of its five car parks, with the program expected to be extended into the remaining two car parks by the end of 2019.
Ocean Guards trap rubbish and other pollutants and sediment. Since their instalment at Robina Town Centre in October 2018 to July 2019, 18.6 tonnes of waste have been diverted from local waterways.
Robina Town Centre’s stormwater system drains directly to Mudgeeraba Creek, which flows to lakes, canals, and ultimately, the ocean.
In conjunction with the Ocean Guard installation, Ocean Protect were on-hand at Robina Town Centre between mid-October 2018 and January 2019 to engage with the community about ways that they can help protect local waterways and oceans, including saying no to plastic bags and notifying Centre staff of any litter.
