About For Our Real Clean Environment


F.O.R.C.E. is a charitable trust aiming to empower the Whangārei district community to protect the natural environment through environmental and waste minimisation projects.

The organisation was formed in mid 2018 by Karen Lee and Nicholas Connop, a.k.a. The Whangārei Rubbish Wrangler. The pair have been organising the Love Whangārei Monthly Clean Ups since February 2018 and wanted to expand the type of projects they organise and support.

* The trust hope to build on what we have already begun and expand into other areas;
* Grow the clean up events and help others in their efforts.
* Work with other organizations to be able to gather data for statistical analysis.
* Providing education and equipment for local waste minimisation
* Encourage; community, upcycling, education, alternative and events.
But why?
Because it’s All of OUR Home.
Because it’s ALL of Our Future.
Because we’ve only got this ONE Earth.
Because we ALL need to make a difference
Why do we do it!? For Our REAL Clean Environment

21/03/2020 A.H. Reed Clean Up

At the spectacularly scenic A H Reed park, we have been notified of a large area that has had rubbish dumped over the bank.
We will also be picking up trash down the road sides and around the parking lot.
We need to have a good team of able bodies pickers to go down the bank and collect up the trash.

We have noted there are potentially NEEDLES in the pile and so will require a decent pair of boots/ gumboots and if you have a good pair of leather gloves bring them along. We will try to minimise handling as much as possible to ensure we have no injuries. We will get a handful of leather gloves to help.

*Location: A.H. Reed Park down banks and roadsides
*Meeting: Parking area on Clapham Road
*When: Saturday 21st March, 10.00am – 12.00pm
*Area: down banks for those who can, along roadsides as well
*What will you need: Sturdy footwear (boots recommended), great attitude and teamwork
*We will provide: Gloves and hi-vis, buckets, water, sunblock, sanitizer, first-aid, grabbers and motivation

19/04/2020 Clean Up – Location TBA

Bring your gumboots and your enthusiasm, we provide the rest.
