What's this project about?
Keep Lower Hutt Beautiful is a non-profit group supported by Council with a vision to reduce litter and pollution in our city. Council has worked closely with Keep Lower Hutt Beautiful since it started in September 1991.
Keep Lower Hutt Beautiful has initiated many programmes and projects for the benefit of the city including:
- Paint out and mural projects
- 'Paint Hutt City Beautiful Week', established before it was picked up by Keep New Zealand Beautiful through its 'Wall Worthy' mural competition
- One-stop shop graffiti eradication programme
- Beach clean-ups
- "Tidiest Schools" competition
Annual Clean Up Week
Clean Up week is the largest national clean-up event in New Zealand, held every spring. Almots 40,000 volunteers took part in 699 events nationwide in 2017.
Clean Up Week is back this year, running from 10-16 September 2018.
Keep New Zealand Beautiful (KNZB) are encouraging schools, community and corporate groups, families and individuals to take some time out of their week to participate in a clean up around their area. They will provide everything you need to run a successful clean up event.
To find out how you can get involved, or to register – head over to the KNZB website to find out how you can get involved.
