Environmental Sustainability at SYC

Clean Marina – Fish Friendly Marina – Food Recycling Centre – Straws No More

Southport Yacht Club is committed to continually finding ways in which it can reduce the impact of its operations on the environment. From food and beverage to Marina operations, SYC’s mission has become to make a difference to its carbon footprint. In 2014 the Club’s Marina was awarded a fish-friendly certificate and clean marina and more recently the kitchen has focused on a food recycling centre. More!

The bar has removed easy access to straws with the intention to completely remove these.

Trash-Cat is the most recent inclusion for SYC. Designed to maintain the cleanliness of our beautiful waterway by removing floating plastic debris. Funding for Trash-Cat provides an operating service collecting glass bottles, aluminium cans and plastic drink bottles from SYC’s three facilities. Not only does the initiative help reduce landfill but assists in cost savings with a reduced amount of crushed glass and smaller demand on council recycling.

Should any members have ideas on environmental sustainability we would like to hear from you.
