Hundreds of tyres are contaminating Porirua Harbour. Since October last year, volunteers have removed 200 tyres from the mouth of the Porirua Stream and there are at least 200 more still in there.That is on top of over 500 tyres dug out of the harbour five years ago by PCC.
The Porirua Harbour Trust Chairperson, Grant Baker said that there may be more yet to be discovered. Jet-skiers have told Mr Baker they often stand on tyres after falling into the water. Go to the attached link to the full Kapi Mana story.
