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

Kirikiri Stream Klean Up

We have been to the Kirikiri stream before and after moving in to the area we have already cleaned up the portion outside of our home. However, there is more that we have seen over banks and in the stream.  
While its warm still, we thought we may as well get stuck in wade the waters and clean out the trash we find for the Eels that live in the stream.  
Easier options of picking up trash along the footpath can be done if you do not feel comfortable going down the bank, or carting the rubbish to the truck.
Bring shoes to get wet or cling to the bank with.

Meeting point: Corner of Silverstream and Maunu Road
The Area: stream sides, banks, footpath edge

What will you need: Sturdy footwear, great attitude and teamwork
We will provide: Gloves, high-vis, buckets, water, sunblock, sanitizer, first-aid, grabbers and motivation
