Covid-19 update

Our DIY beach clean kits are available at Level 2.

Your kit will be available for pick-up from our Flagship office in the Wynyard Quarter or you can get a contactless delivery to your door for a fee (details below).

If you’re picking yours up, please book in a pick-up and drop-off time and to adhere to social distancing rules when collecting your DIY kit. We also ask everyone to please wash gloves before returning, as always. As an added precaution we will also be washing gloves thoroughly following NZ Health and Safety guidelines before sending them back out.

DIY kits

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.

Our community website loveyourcoast.org.nz provides how-to guides for planning clean-up events as well as the facility to upload and promote your event if you want to reach a wider group. 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. 

To request your kit or ask any questions, please contact the team on diy@sustainablecoastlines.org.

Hirepool DIY Hero of the Month

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 complete a beach clean-up with one of our DIY kits, take a photo of you and your crew with the supplied Hirepool-branded rubbish sack, and send it to us with your feedback form. We’ll make a draw each month for the DIY Hero of the Month.
