Bulls join clean up challenge
The Port Taranaki Bulls will be swapping rugby balls for rubbish bags this September after a series of challenges have been laid down to Adopt-a-Spot this Keep New Zealand Beautiful Clean-Up Week.
The Bulls will be picking up rubbish at Fitzroy Beach along with team sponsor, Programmed Marine, on Saturday September 16.
Also taking up the challenge is New Plymouth District Mayor Neil Holdom, who has adopted his favourite local spot, the Rotoz Dirt Jump Park. Holdom has challenged the community to take part, via the New Plymouth District Council Facebook page.
More than 18 groups have already taken up the challenge by adopting a spot using the new online registration initiative on the NPDC website. Those who register will receive official KNZB rubbish bags which will be accepted at all district transfer stations between 11-20 September 11-20, free of charge.
Those who wish to join the Port Taranaki Bulls are welcome to head along to Fitzroy beach on Saturday, September 16, from 1.30pm to 3pm. There will also be lunchtime clean-up sessions run by NPDC, starting on Monday September 11.
For more information, or to adopt your spot and receive your free clean up kit, head to newplymouthnz.com. Registrations are open until September 2.
