Update 6: Fox River clean-up

Volunteer effort “massive”

A massive effort from volunteers over the weekend of 6-7 April has cleared significant amounts of rubbish from the area just north and south of the Fox River in South Westland.

“The initial clean-up of this area is now almost complete,” says Westland District Mayor Bruce Smith. “It’s a good start, however we’ve still got a big job ahead of us”.

While there is still a lot of work to, Bruce Smith says the scale of the rubbish dispersal from the flooded Fox River site is smaller than originally reported.
