Clean Up Week

G.J. Gardner Homes Clean Up Week - 9th-15th September 2019

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the ‘kit your own clean up’ concept work?

Instead of automatically sending out clean up kits this year, we will be providing suggestions on what sustainable resources co-ordinators and volunteers can use to get their clean ups underway. Buckets, gardening gloves, sacks, animal feed bags, reusable bags etc. However, if this isn’t feasible for your group, we will still be providing clean up kits on a request basis. We will have separate webforms available to 1) register your clean up event 2) request a clean up kit as needed. Please note, that these kits will still include single use bags and gloves that we have had donated in previous years. We will still have all the informational resources available to those who register their event in online downloadable format.

 

How will groups be able to dispose of their collected rubbish free of charge at the selected transfer stations if this is no longer recognised by the KNZB yellow stickers on the bags?

In the reply email you receive once you register your event, you will receive the same sticker, in a digital format that you’re able to present to the transfer station on your device upon arrival.

 

What re-usable resources can we use to kit our own clean up events?

Some suggestions include:

  • Gardening gloves
  • Buckets
  • Coffee sacks
  • Fabric bags
  • Re-usable plastic bins
  • Animal feed bags

Can you recommend any litter hot spots to target for a Clean Up Week event?

Public areas with high foot traffic and few public rubbish bins tend to attract the most litter. Beaches, parks, shopping centres etc. If you would like more specific suggestions in your local area, we recommend you get in touch with the council contact listed under ‘Council Contacts’ in the Clean Up Week 2019 Event Guide.
