|Marinas across Australia and the Asia/Pacific region now have a new
environmental standard and the CYCSA is one of the first of three
marinas in Australia to achieve this level of certification. Marinas with this
accreditation are recognised for achieving the world standard for
environmental management systems. The program was established in 2002 by
the Marina Industries Association of Australia (MIAA) with the
objective of protecting the nation’s coastal and in-land waterways.
Rubbish/Recycling Area and Waste Oil Station – Marina East
The Rubbish Area is located south of the Trolley Bay for the disposal of general waste and recyclable materials. The Waste Oil Station is located at the rear of the Rubbish Area. Facilities are available for the disposal of waste oil, oily rags, batteries and coolant.
Oil spills are of concern to the Club. If you see anything please report it to Reception. For large spills, an Environmental Spill Kit (emergency orange wheelie bin) is located at the bottom of the marina walkways in Marina East and Marina West and in the Clubhouse at Port Vincent, and contains a boom to trap substances, and soaker pads to mop up. Easy operating instructions are listed on the inside of the lid. Please advise the office as soon as practicable if a spill has occurred. Waste oil must be disposed of in the Waste Oil Stations located at the rear of the rubbish bin area.
