Seabin™ - Cleaning Our Oceans
With the support of Yamaha Motor Australia a smart-thinking Aussie company has invented a garbage can for the world's waterways
Yamaha Motor Australia supports Yamaha Motor Company’s goals for a sustainable society through its Yamaha Rightwaters environmental program. A range of local initiatives are supported, including major sponsorship of Australian company Seabin™.

Through this sponsorship, Seabin™has been able to expand its program by placing 22 of its high-tech Seabins at various locations around Sydney Harbour. Over a 12-month period, the Seabins will collect a staggering 16.5 tonnes of plastics, surface oils and other debris that would otherwise still be floating in our waterways.
With Yamaha’s sponsorship assistance, Seabin™ has continued to develop its design with the view to placing Seabins in major waterways around the globe. This program is called the #100 Smarter Cities For Cleaner Oceans campaign.
Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd will continue to make products that deliver fun on our waterways, as well as remaining committed to sustainability through the resolution of social issues in the countries and communities it operates. This includes providing financial and technical support to companies such as Seabin. Yamaha Motor will always look for the next advancement and innovation to combat environmental challenges.
