Tāhunanui Beach Clean Up 2024

Sunday 22nd September 2024

Following on from the success of last year’s Beach Clean-Up event, we’re inviting local businesses and the community again to join in our efforts to clean up Tāhunanui Beach and its surroundings as part of New Zealand's largest movement against litter during Clean Up Week 2024.

Please RSVP at

Clean Up Week is a nationwide initiative focusing the community's attention on how much litter is polluting our environment.
Last year, approx. 67,200 volunteers took part in 627 clean-up events across Aotearoa and collected a total of 652 tonnes of waste over an area equivalent to 5,728 rugby fields.

There will be a Thank You BBQ and prizes for the most bags/most litter collected as well as spot prizes.

Remember to dress appropriately, ie. wear sturdy shoes and a sun hat and bring some water to drink! We also encourage everyone to bring their own gardening or other reusable gloves and any reusable bags or buckets to collect with (we will have spare gloves and bags though).

Please register on arrival (for H & S reasons). Look out for our gazebo near the Rocks Road end of Tāhunanui Beach behind the playground.

Please share this event, the more the merrier!
