NSS Cleans Up
Northern Stevedoring Services (NSS) was proud to participate in the annual Great Northern Clean Up 2016 which helped clean up 50 kg of rubbish along the Ross River. We recognise how important it is to look after our water ways and prevent rubbish from entering the marine environment in which we work. It was a great opportunity to help the environment and teach our kids about our unique ecosystems.
There were numerous activities for everyone including a recycling sorting station, face painting and a free breakfast for everyone involved. There were also nature presentations, water bug identification, birdwatching and kayaking. NSS received some free native plant species from the Bush Garden Nursery that are compatible with our bio-retention basin and will us help filter the stormwater from our Bulk Handling Facility before being released to the marine environment.
