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.

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.
