A Clean up of the Ōtara Creek Reserve was organised on Saturday 29th April as part of the Ōtara Waterways and Lake Trust’s ongoing efforts to clean up the Ōtara waterways and provide positive ways for the local community to get involved.

40 people picked up illegal dumped items and litter from the creek in pouring rain for over two hours.

Over 40 bags of rubbish were retrieved from the creek, including shopping trolleys, computers and other larger inorganic items.
