Councils and Non-Profit Organisations

Keeping New Zealand beautiful is an enormous task. But if we all roll our sleeves up and tackle our own back yards, we can make a big collective impact.  

Keep New Zealand Beautiful works with councils and community groups up and down the country who are tackling local environmental issues like graffiti and litter. We’d love your organisation to come on board with us – and we want to hear and share your stories.

Become a partner

Keep New Zealand Beautiful is always looking to build partnerships with like-minded organisations who are committed to making a difference in their communities. If you share our passion for creating cleaner, safer, more beautiful environments and would like to work with us, we’d love to hear from you.

You might have resources to donate, person power to contribute, or a membership base you can share our messages with. Contact us to discuss partnership opportunities.

Councils

We work closely with councils all over New Zealand on initiatives like graffiti and litter clean-up and prevention. We can provide squads of keen volunteers to help you implement your graffiti and litter eradication measures. We can support you in initiatives such as cigarette butt bin installation and help communicate your messages to our members in your area.

Your membership also ensures you’re eligible to enter our annual Keep New Zealand Beautiful Awards, which celebrate our best towns and cities.
