Fox River: Govt should have stepped up faster - Forest and Bird

From Morning Report, 8:55 am on 13 August 2019

Volunteers helped remove more than 13,000 bags of rubbish from Fox River that had spewed from a disused landfill in flooding in March.

The volunteers finished up this weekend, and the Defence Force and DoC will continue the clean-up. But Forest and Bird says communities can't rely on volunteers dropping everything to help in future.

Forest and Bird regional manager Nicky Snoyink spoke to Morning Report.
