Underwater Recycling

At Gulen Dive Resort, visiting divers can help maintain a healthy house reef by throwing trash in the underwater recycling bins. And believe me, it's become popular!



Posted on Aug 30, 2009

- When the bins are emptied, this unique recycling project not only helps support local wildlife. It also underlines our responsibility to care for the underwater world, says Ørjan Sandnes, owner of Gulen Dive Resort.

The three trash bins, generously donated by the local recycling facility NGIR, have become very popular and gives divers the opportunity to help maintain a healthy and debris free house reef.

250 kilos removed

At regular intervals, often in conjunction with Project AWARE cleanup dives, the bins are emptied and the contents taken to the local recycling plant.

In the summer of 2009 alone, more than 250 kilos of underwater debris was removed from the house reef.

The underwater recycling project was recently mentioned in the Project AWARE and on their Facebook page.

Dive magazines and websites around the world have also been reporting on this novel apporach to maintainging a health house reef.
