Porirua dump site to be cleared, made over

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By CHAR­LIE MITCHELL

A new ini­tia­tive to clean up a long-stand­ing dump site is un­der way in Porirua.

Leanne My­ers and James Michael, di­rec­tors of Take­care, a com­post­ing busi­ness in Ti­tahi Bay, are leading a project to clear away piles of rubbish from an area near Porirua hospi­tal.

Commercial property firm Col­liers In­ter­na­tional is fund­ing the project.

‘‘The site has been used as a dump­ing ground by the pub­lic for many, many years,’’ said My­ers.

‘‘This is a prob­lem in Porirua, all this dump­ing that hap­pens around dif­fer­ent ar­eas. So we want to start a cam­paign and re­ally get the mes­sage across about re­spect­ing our Earth.’’

Once the rubbish has been cleared, My­ers and Michael plan to build a path­way with seat­ing for the com­mu­nity to use.
