National Environment Science Program (NESP) - Remote Waste and Marine Debris project

18 March 19

This project looked at waste management issues in three remote communities on Cape York Peninsula—Lockhart River, Mapoon and Pormpuraaw (see map inside). All three of these communities are growing, with new housing being constructed in each community, as well as increasing numbers of visitors and tourists, all of which generate an increasing amount of waste. These communities also each collect and dispose of increasing amounts of marine debris from their beaches and estuaries on an ongoing basis.
