Over 100 log tags found on Kaiti Beach

When more than 100 log tags were found on Kaiti Beach during a clean-up by Waikirikiri School students, Eastland Port was contacted.

Eastland Group chief operating officer Andrew Gaddum said he wanted to thank the member of the public who brought the issue to his attention.“I’ve been in contact with ISO, who provide the log handling services on the port, and we are working together on several ideas to ensure this issue is remedied permanently. However, in the short-term we will be working to ensure none of the tags leave the port site, and any that do are recovered immediately.Mr Gaddum said Eastland Group staff supported and participated in the Sustainable Coastlines’ citizen scientist Litter Project, teaming up with school children and members of the community to collect and record rubbish along Kaiti Beach.“To learn that some of this litter was coming from products going through our port was really disappointing.“As we progress with the options to fix this issue, we will keep the public informed.”
