1 – 31 March 2020
Facilitated by EcoMatters, War on Weeds happens annually during the month of March.
Extra bins around West Auckland give 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.
Bin locations are shown on the map below, and will be available from 1-31 March 2020. Thank you for using these bins only for the target weeds listed below.
