Tuakau Cleanup Day and pest control Hub Day

Massive day of community activity – all welcome.

Every year the Tuakau community gets together to clean up the town, but this year they’re also partnering with us to add a pest control Hub Day. Come and plant food trees to add to the more than 400 already planted, clean up rubbish, and help with the development of exciting trails. Get your free pest control supplies, along with friendly advice and best trapping tips.

Community Day
