A Great Clean-Up

Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - STUFF REPORTER

The Ware­house and Neigh­bourly have joined forces to tidy up neigh­bour­hoods.

A na­tion­wide ini­tia­tive, The Great Com­mu­nity Clean Up (GCCU), is en­cour­ag­ing Ki­wis to get out into their com­mu­ni­ties to give them a clean-up be­tween Oc­to­ber 3 and Oc­to­ber 9.

The Ware­house ex­ec­u­tive gen­eral man­ager com­mu­nity and en­vi­ron­ment Paul Walsh says some­thing as sim­ple as pick­ing up rub­bish from your lo­cal street or park is a great way to get in­volved.

A num­ber of The Ware­house stores are or­gan­is­ing their own clean-up events in their neigh­bour­hoods.

Neigh­bourly co-founder Casey Eden says the event is about en­cour­ag­ing ‘‘each and ev­ery one of us to take own­er­ship of the places we call home’’.

‘‘A clean-up doesn’t have to be a huge ges­ture,’’ Eden says.

‘‘The small­est acts re­ally can make a dif­fer­ence and show your com­mu­nity you care.

‘‘Plus, they make your com­mu­nity a cleaner place for you and your neigh­bours to live in.’’

Reg­is­ter­ing a Great Com­mu­nity Clean Up event on Neigh­bourly puts mem­bers in the draw to win prizes in­clud­ing $100 gift cards from The Ware­house. The cam­paign also has an award for the Lit­tle Kiwi Clean Up Star - recog­nis­ing those aged 13 and un­der who take part.
