Summer waste barge services in the Hauraki Gulf

Published: Sat 12 Jan 2019 10:49 AM
Auckland Council is taking positive action again this summer to keep Auckland's Waitematā Harbour beautiful by providing waste barges out in the Hauraki Gulf to help boaties dispose of their waste.
With the influx of people to the Hauraki Gulf islands over summer, the council encourages day visitors coming by boat or ferry to ‘pack in and pack out’ and take their waste with them when they go.
“If people are visiting one of the islands for a day, we’re asking people to take their waste home with them and dispose of it responsibly, in their kerbside waste or recycling bins,” says Parul Sood, Programme Director Waste Solutions.
“For those out on the water for longer periods, Auckland Council has set up summer waste barge services in the Hauraki Gulf to support leisure boat users to effectively manage their waste while out on the water.”
