Description

The crew on the Phil Warren scoops up a wide variety of rubbish from the Waitemata Harbour including plastic wrap and tyres. Kayaks or a flat-bottomed punt are used to clean along the shoreline and beaches as well as in estuaries and mangrove areas. Since inception in December 2002 we have collected a total of 1,082,713 litres of litter during 9344 hours of operation. Rubbish that can be recycled is sorted and taken to the Waitakere City Council refuse transfer station, but most ‘Ý?harbour‘Ý? rubbish like tyres, cannot be recycled and adds to increasing landfill volumes. The total number of volunteers used since inception 1872. The total number of volunteer hours since inception is 11,414. The total volume collected by volunteers since inception is 177,050 litres. Please give us a hand!
