Community clean-ups

We love it when businesses, schools and other community groups get in touch to offer to help clean up one of our public parks or near waterways. And we’re here to make it easy for you to do just that.

Adopt a spot and do your bit for Papatuanuku.

Bring your community together to protect the public spaces you love

We can let you know some locations that might be good, or you might have your own in mind!

We’ll also make sure you have rubbish bags that we’ll dispose of, and talk you through some of the gear you might need to keep your squad safe.

Our awesome teams work so hard to keep our city beautiful and clean, but with such a big space, it’s great to have some volunteers to help us keep on top of it all.
