Get your DIY kit

If you’re keen to run a clean-up with your family, school or community group or a team from work, we can help you out. We’ve put together the resources you need to do it yourself.

We will provide you with how-to guides for planning clean-up events. You can also find information about this on our resources page. Depending on your location and our availability, we may be able to deliver our awareness presentation to your group before the event.

Our DIY kits include reusable sacks, gloves, hand sanitiser, sharps container, auditing tarpaulin and data collection sheet, and safety briefing. These are free for families, community groups, non-profits and educational institutions. For use by for-profit organisations we ask for a minimum contribution of $230 to cover administration and equipment costs.

Please request your kit with at least five working days prior to your clean-up for Auckland-based clean-ups. Requests outside of Auckland require 10 working days’ notice and a $25 courier fee to be paid.

This DIY option is for groups handling their event self-sufficiently — from selecting a site to rubbish disposal. If you are interested in a tailored event with support from our staff, please visit our ‘book an event’ page.

Our friends at Hirepool want to see more people like you out doing beach clean-ups, so together, we launched DIY Hero of the Month! Every month, a dedicated DIYer will be awarded the title along with a $100 Hirepool voucher.

To enter, all you need to do is take a photo with you and your crew at your clean-up with the Hirepool logo on the rubbish sack clearly visible. Send it to us along with your feedback form. Each month we will have a draw for the DIY Hero of the Month.
