Our Litter Infringement Policy became effective on 11 December, 2019. The purpose of the policy is to keep Porirua tidy and free from illegal dumping. The policy enables Council officers to issue infringement notices between $100 and $400, depending on the type and amount of litter.
Footage taken September 2020, of the complex clean-up at Paekākāriki Hill Rd, removing a substantial pile of rubbish dumped down a steep bank.
The operation was carried out by Porirua City Council contractors Downer NZ, using abseilers, skips and specialised trucks and lifting equipment. This cost ratepayers thousands of dollars and if the offenders of this callous and calculated dumping are identified, they will be prosecuted.
