Do you have a special beach or coastal area that you care about and would like to help look after?
Charitable conservation trust Tasman Bay Guardians is encouraging everyone in the community to take ownership of caring for their favourite part of the coastline, by signing up to their Rubbish Free Beaches programme.
The programme will support community-owned and led clean-ups run by groups, schools or businesses. Groups can choose when and where they’d like to do their bit to keep our beaches plastic and rubbish free.
Tasman Bay Guardians can answer questions about health and safety, rubbish disposal and reusable bags.
Check out the FAQs and register at the Tasman Bay Guardians beach clean-up portal.
Council supports these clean-ups through providing free disposal of waste collected by the community.
