Beach-lovers are being called to help clean up their favourite locations as part of the WA Beach Clean-Up initiative.

Care For Hedland will again be supporting the Tangaroa Blue initiative by holding beach clean- ups at Cemetery Beach and Pretty Pool this Saturday as well as a clean-up at 6 Mile Beach hosted by Pilbara Ports Authority.

Volunteers are encouraged to slip, slop, slap and wear enclosed shoes, with everything else being provided on the day.

From 7am, all volunteers are encouraged to come down and will be rewarded with a sausage sizzle from 9am-10am.

After the clean-up, the environmental asso-ciation has announced it will host a recycling launch.

Association co-ordinator Jo Smith said the launch would be a great opportunity to find out more about how to recycle in Hedland and the facilities available for residents.

“Increasing recycling in Hedland is a great way to maintain a healthy environment,” she said.

“By minimising what goes into landfill, we can give recyclable material new life and reduce overall waste and consumption.”

Local recycling companies will be giving out information and showing residents where and how they can recycle their household waste in Hedland.
