Huanui College SeaBin Sorters

For the 2nd year running Huanui College, Glenbervie has sorting the SeaBin on their timetable of Thursday afternoon optional activities. This term we have Aston Plunkett, Zef Brooks and Charley Welford continuing the College’s support of the Seabin.

The Seabin was officially opened in April 2019 by Pippa Benton and other Huanui College students who approached Ocean Spirit wanting to do something for the Ocean. Kindly supported by Whangarei City Rotary Club and The Tutukaka Marina Management Trust the SeaBin has been running for almost 4 years now. Many volunteers help sort the rubbish that the SeaBin collects, and the data is uploaded to the international SeaBin Project data collection site for analysis. Other students volunteer their time as part of Community Work and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

The SeaBin shed was donated in 2022 by Northland Waste and is proving invaluable for storing all the rubbish collected, as well as the collection buckets and a compost bin donated by Huanui College.
