As part of our Love Your Coast Tamaki Makaurau project and in celebration of Seaweek, we would love you to join us on Saturday 3 March 2018 on the jewel of the Waitemata Harbour – Waiheke Island.

Thanks to a partnership with Fullers Ferries, we have 100 complimentary return spaces for registered volunteers departing from Auckland CBD, on one of the following sailings: 6am, 7am, 8am and 8.30am. Please let us know if you need tickets through our registration form and we will email them to you.

From 8:30am to 3pm on Saturday 3 March, come along to either of our two clean-up stations to register, receive important health & safety info and collect reusable rubbish sacks and gloves. We’ll give advice on the best clean-up spots around the island, or you can head out to your favourite location. After you’re done, return to the station with your coastal trash so we can dispose of it properly.

Clean-up Station Locations:

  • Matiatia near the wharf
  • Charlie Farley’s restaurant, Onetangi Beach

If you have a vehicle or a boat that you would be happy to have involved, please let Sam Judd know (021 058 9349, [email protected]) and come to join the fun! This will really help us to get to the more remote places of this beautiful island to give her the clean-up she deserves.
