OPERATION Zero Rubbish is under way in South Invercargill, and anyone who would like to can take part, South Alive manager Cress Evans says.
The community clean-up is taking place throughout this month, with different areas targeted for an hour each Sunday.
‘‘Our aim is to pick up rubbish in areas of South Invercargill which haven’t been adopted under our Operation Zero Rubbish scheme… and to raise awareness of [the scheme].’’
The South Alive initiative, which began in 2013, aimed to have every street, park or area adopted by people to keep them free of rubbish.
Unfortunately, some streets which had been adopted now needed new adoptees as people’s circumstances had changed, Ms Evans said.
‘‘People move away, so we want to make sure certain pockets of South Invercargill are still being looked after to keep the momentum of Operation Zero Rubbish going.’’
Ms Evans said during the Sunday clean-ups, gloves, rubbish bags and hi-viz vests would be supplied.
South Alive would host a thank you barbecue at Elizabeth Park for all those who helped on Sunday, May 29, beginning at 3pm.
Í South Alive community clean-ups. Sunday, May 15, 1pm, McQuarrie Park, McQuarrie St; Sunday, May 22, 1pm, Russell Square, Elles Rd; Sunday, May 29, 1pm, Elizabeth Park, John St.
