Illegally-dumped rubbish is unhygienic and a depressing
sight which gives the impression we don't care about our place.
It also attracts dogs, cats, rats and mice. Bottles, especially
broken ones, are a safety hazard to all.
Illegal rubbish dumping is prohibited. Call 0800 TRASHY
to report this activity.

Tuesday from the roadside from 7.30 am. Rubbish must be

to avoid pests scattering the rubbish, please put bags out
of reach if possible.

This New Zealand wide, well proven Community Scheme is an
essential part of making our community Safe and Crime Free.
This organisation combined with the Police presence and the
Community Patrol Car will make Pukehina a place feared by
the criminal element and a community that can manage any emergency.
"Neighbours looking after Neighbours".
Our community has a dedicated voluntary team of 28 team leaders
covering all the properties at Pukehina Beach. Our aim is
to be instrumental in preventing crime in the area by keeping
our eyes and ears open and reporting suspicious activity to
the Police. We also want to help keep your properties safe
and secure by advising you of any damage to your property
in your absence. In relation to current crime trends that
Police feel is appropriate to pass on to our community that
they will deliver this prevention advice through Neighbourhood
Support and update us on any issues within our community.
The Neighbourhood support team is very keen for you to:
- Get behind neighbourhood support to keep Pukehina safe
and free of crime
- Know who your team leader is
- Report ALL incidents or suspicious activities as soon
as you can - nothing is too trivial!
- Get to know your immediate neighbours so that you can
all look out for each other
- Your team leader will happily assist in helping you achieve
Would you like to supply us with your contact details? If
you have already done so could you please update us with any
details that have changed?
The information you supply will be passed on to the Team
Leader looking after your stretch of the beach and will be
kept confidential and used only for Neighbourhood Support
matters. If you have any questions or would like to be part
of our team do not hesitate to contact us.
