Mission Information
When it rains water flows through the rubbish in these bins and, in some cases, it then flows into the lake. This surface run-off and can harm wildlife. A pencil or a pen, some paper and even a camera will help on this mission. 

You can email your mission report to when you are done. You might change things for the better!
Mission Risk: Medium
Medium. Keep your wits about you, anything could happen.Water can be fun. It can also really suck. Don't go too close to the water here. If you fancy a dip, pop to the swimming area on the other side of the lake. Oh, and don't touch stuff in or oozing from the bins or you might end up puking on yourself.. or one of the beautiful pelicans that chill out around here.
