1 – 31 March 2017
The war is on! Facilitated by EcoMatters WeedFree, War on Weeds happens annually during the month of March.
This month of extra bins gives West Auckland households further support to help eliminate invasive weeds on their gardens, and by extension, control the spread of weeds into Auckland’s beautiful West Coast bush. Alongside War on Weeds, there are several permanent weed bins located in the Waitākere Ranges.
