The Watercare Harbour Clean-Up Trust oversees the removal of litter from Auckland's Waitemata Harbour and inner gulf islands, and promotes the concept of rubbish-free waterways.
Sponsored by Watercare, the Trust has two contractors who crew the ‘Phil Warren’ boat. They work year round to scoop up bottles, plastic wrappers, tyres and other litter from the harbour. They also clean along the shorelines and beaches as well as in estuaries and mangrove areas using kayaks or a flat-bottomed punt.
