Coastal clean a suc­cess

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

More than a tonne of waste was col­lected in the Amaz­ing Coastal Chal­lenge on March 27.

Vol­un­teers cleaned up 48 kilo­me­tres of the Porirua coast­line. City coun­cil­lor Anita Baker said the har­bour looked stunning af­ter the mam­moth cleanup.

‘‘The amount of waste col­lected shows it’s still a sig­nif­i­cant prob­lem, and it’s sad that so much of it, like drink bot­tles, is clearly dumped by in­di­vid­u­als,’’ she said.

Care­ful lit­ter dis­posal would im­prove the look and health of the har­bour, she said.
