Waikanae clean-up moves to this Sunday

WAIKANAE Beach will be sparkling after a “monster” clean-up on Sunday as part of Keep New Zealand Beautiful Week.

All around the country next week, communities will take part in the largest litter clean-up.

Plastic Bag Free Tairawhiti, which runs a beach clean-up at the end of each month, has re-scheduled to Sunday at Waikanae Beach.

“This is a great opportunity to become involved in a family-friendly beach clean-up of one of our city’s iconic town beaches in readiness for the warmer months ahead,” said organiser Glenda Smith.

“The invitation goes out to the wider community to support this national week to help beautify our coastal environment.”

Last year Keep New Zealand Beautiful Week events around NZ collected 60 tonnes of rubbish.

The clean-up will be from 2pm to 3pm.

People are encouraged to bring their own gloves and a bucket to collect rubbish, though these will be supplied if necessary. .

The meeting place is between Waikanae Surf Life Saving Club and the Waikanae playground.
