The Hirepool Big Clean – Christchurch 2020

29/02/2020 at 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm


In support of Sea Week 2020 and to celebrate our premium partnership with Sustainable Coastlines, we’re mucking in and doing a BIG public clean-up of Christchurch beaches, from Governors Bay to Waimari on Saturday February 29th!

Come and join us from 1:30 to 4:30, to help us have the biggest possible impact on cleaning up the rubbish found on the coast. If you’re a local pop along with your knowledge of the rubbish hot spots, We’ll be enabling local community groups to run their own cleanup ‘stations’ to have the biggest possible impact on cleaning up the rubbish found on the coast.

Join Hirepool Ltd, Sustainable Coastlines, and Scott and Mig from Fishing & Adventure on the day to take part and be sure to engage in some good fishing chat while we’re at it!

Registration stations will be located at:
New Brighton Beach: Registration is just south of New Brighton Library. This station will be managed by the Sustain South Brighton and will service Waimari Beach to SouthShore and the surrounding community areas.

Sumner Beach Register next to the Beach Bar. This station will be managed by Remix Plastic and local residents, and will service Charlesworth Reserve to Taylors Mistake and the surrounding community areas.
