A group of environmentally minded Selwyn District residents collected rubbish in a few Rolleston streets as part of a Waste Audit organised by Rolleston Envirotown’s Rachel Cottam during Keep New Zealand Beautiful Week 15 - 21 September. The exercise was supported by Sharon McIver recycling consultant and Selwyn District Council's Waste Manager Gavin Sole.

A survey was conducted in 2012 by Rolleston Envirotown. 162 people responded to the questions in the survey. The environment was either very important or important to 90% of respondents. 19% were concerned about rubbish. People mentioned the importance of green areas, parks and streets kept clean of weeds and rubbish and asked for the provision of rubbish bins in the town area. The results of this survey inspired the group Rolleston Envirotown to organise a waste audit.

The collected rubbish was sorted at the Rolleston Envirotown Community Garden, then taken to the Pines Resource Recovery Park and placed in the appropriate containers.

This waste audit highlighted one of Rolleston Envirotown’s Aims & Objectives:-

Promote a beautiful environment in which people want to live and look after for present and future generations.
