CLEAN UP WEEK 2017
11 September - 17 September
Clean Up Week is back for 2017!
Join us for New Zealand’s largest litter clean up event. Taking place from September 11th to September 17th Keep New Zealand Beautiful will supply you with everything you need to ensure your event is a success.
New to Clean Up Week 2017
Website: we have recently changed to a new website platform, meaning there are a few changes to the online event setup for 2017.
The new platform should enhance your Clean Up Week Event experience and now gives you the ability to further promote your event to family, friends and your community. Have a read of the below for some key things you should know.
Logins: Any old/existing logins for the KNZB website will no longer work. After you have filled in the event registration form you will be prompted to set up a new login that will give you access to lots of great new features including social sharing and fundraising.
Fundraising: Clean Up Week costs KNZB approx. $80,000 each year which is largely covered by the generosity of our members and sponsors. To offset some of these costs in 2017 we have introduced a fundraising option for groups. Any donation big or small is greatly appreciated by KNZB and will go toward future environmental initiatives that will ensure a cleaner, greener and safer New Zealand. Please note: we really appreciate all the hard work you’re putting in for your Clean Up Week event and fundraising is NOT obligatory!
Social sharing compatibility: Through the new platform you will be prompted to create an event page that will allow you to share your event with family, friends and your community through your social media accounts. This will help you to promote your event and get everyone involved! It is also a great way to drive your fundraising, if you are taking part in this.
Registering Multiple Events – IMPORTANT
As we have changed platforms this year, to incorporate the event pages and fundraising capability, you can now only register one clean up event per unique email address.
This means that every event registered will have the opportunity to set up an event/fundraising page, to communicate with attendees and, if applicable, drive their fundraising efforts.
We understand in some instances registering with individual email addresses may not possible. If this is the case, please DO NOT register using the below form. Instead we ask that you email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on (09) 264 1434 and one of our friendly staff members will be able to assist you with registering your events.
Our FREE clean up kit includes:
- Rubbish bags
- Recycling bags
- Disposable gloves
- Badges for the kids
- Detailed event guide
- Health and safety guide
- Risk assessment plan
- And more…
We have also been in touch with every council in New Zealand and organised free rubbish disposal wherever we can while Clean Up Week is on. The team at Waste Management and EnviroWaste have kindly agreed to open up their transfer stations for free rubbish disposal where possible also. Make sure you read the event guide in detail to find out where the transfer stations are that are going to be open. Note, different transfer stations collect rubbish in slightly different ways, therefore we recommend you call ahead so you can ensure on the day you sort your rubbish accordingly.
We have created a stack of resources for you to help you out with promoting your event and in the lead up. Check out our resources section to download these.
You simply need to pick a day and time, then sign up with your friends, family, colleagues or class mates. While registering you will be asked how many volunteers you have, if you don’t know the exact number just pop in an indication. In regards to the number of rubbish bags you will need we suggest 1 recycling bag and 1 rubbish bag per 4 children, and approximately 1 recycling bag and 1 rubbish bag per 2-3 adults. This is an indication only.
If you are planning on distributing the kits out to groups within your community please can you send us an email to let us know so we can work with you to capture the results and data from the groups you are providing the kits to.
Register today, and then keep an eye out for your kit in the post. Please allow 10 working days to receive your kit.
If you have any questions at all drop us a line email@example.com or give us a call (09) 264 1434.
Clean Up Week wouldn’t be possible without the support of our amazing sponsors.
