Roll up Your Sleeves And Keep New Zealand Beautiful

Keep New Zealand Beautiful Clean Up Week will take place from 20 – 27 August this year.

The Waikato district will be taking part in the national week-long event that encourages individuals, schools, and organisations to get involved and pick up litter in their communities.

Waikato District Council chief executive, Gavin Ion, said Clean Up Week was a great opportunity for people to really show their pride in their community.

“Last year more than 2000 volunteers helped paint over tagging and remove rubbish from local parks, reserves, and roadways.

“Clean up Week is a great incentive for everyone to roll up their sleeves and give the Waikato district a spruce up,” he said.

Waikato District Council will provide litter bags, recycle bags, and gloves to participants in Clean Up Week. Bags and recycling can then be put out on the usual collection day to be collected.

To get involved, schools, groups and individuals need to complete a registration form and nominate a ‘clean up area’. The event will take place from Saturday 20 until Saturday 27 August 2011.

Registration forms are available on Council’s website www.waikatodistrict.govt.nz, from council offices, or from Waikato District libraries.

The closing date for registrations is Friday 12 August 2011.
