Yabby Trap Round-up
Trap Drop Spot

Look out for this symbol at events where you can drop your traps.

Swap your opera house yabby traps for an Oar-Gee Plow lure!

The Yabby Trap Round-Up is collecting all old and unwanted yabby traps to protect the future of fishing and the health of our waterways. The traps collected will be recycled into useful products for fishers, with the proceeds being used to support habitat restoration. As a thank you, we’ll give you a new Oar-Gee lure.

Post in your old yabby trap for free!

If you can't make it to any events with Trap Drop Spots, don't worry, you can still recycle your net by following these simple instructions.

Step 1: Remove the Fabric Net
Using scissors, carefully separate the fabric net from the metal frame of your yabby trap.

Step 2: Package the Net
Place the fabric netting into an appropriately sized envelope or package. Remember, we only need the net, so please recycle the metal frame yourself. Local Council waste centres often provide free metal recycling services.

Step 3: Include Your Details
Inside the package, include a note with your name and address so we can send your free Oar-Gee lure to the right location.

Step 4: Label and Post

Label the package with the following address and take it to Australia Post to use the free 'Reply Paid' postage service:
