Our Environmental Policy
Clean business practices protect the environment
Soldiers Point Marina is committed to the creation and ongoing maintenance of a clean and safe work environment. We will be diligent in best practice management of our operations and our legislative requirements to protect our waters, marina life, fish, and waterfowl from possible boat and marina pollutants and impacts. We will continually assess and improve the management of our operations to limit our impacts on the surrounding environment.
Soldiers Point Marina is a Fish Friendly Marina and you agree to abide by the fish friendly requirements imposed on us. Under hull scraping is not allowed under any circumstances. Some environmentally friendly cleaning agents are permitted – if in doubt ask the marina management. Plastic Bags are not allowed to be used at the marina. Fish Waste is also not permitted to be dumped or discarded on or near the marina premises – a fish cleaning table and waste are provided at the Soldiers Point Boat Ramp.
Dirty Water Harms the Environment, Spoils Boating Enjoyment & Hurts Marina Business.
It is the responsibility of every Soldiers Point customer and EVERY employee to work together to keep our Marina and boating environment clean. It is the policy of Soldiers Point Marina to do everything possible to discourage anyone from polluting while encouraging and helping customers do the right thing. All Employees are part of our Marina team dedicated to cleaning up, eliminating contaminants before they enter the environment, clearing up anything which spoils our Soldiers Point environment.
Soldiers Point Marina sets objectives and targets in an attempt to achieve a better experience for our guests and environment. The environmental improvements change frequently therefore amendments to this policy will occur. This is the current policy – updated December 2019.
Pollution is Everybody’s Business
Whether we like it or not, people pollute in everything we do and everywhere we go. Sometimes the amount of pollution is so small that it is never recognised; just a small drop in a big ocean. At other times those small drops can add up to a much larger volume which can harm the environment.
WARNING: Any Employee, Customer, or Outside Contractor Violating Soldiers Point Marina’s Pollution Control Regulations, can be Disciplined, asked to Pay For Clean-up, and/or have Marina Use Privileges Terminated.
Soldiers Point Marina is proud of our Environmental policy and wants to ensure the public and our guests are aware of it. This policy is reviewed annually and provided in guest compendiums on arrival, it is also displayed in the main office and throughout the marina for the public to view.
