Estuary Clean Up Crew

Chiptech has partnered with Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust to help with the ‘Clean up our Waterways’ project.


Our factory is based in Ferrymead, Christchurch, and we are lucky to be near the Avon-Heathcote Estuary. As part of our Environmental Charter, Chiptech is proud to be doing our part to support the ecosystem by helping keep the waterways clean and the open spaces safe for recreation and wildlife. Chiptech has been allocated a 100m section of the Estuary and once a month we will send our eager team members out in gumboots and gloves to conduct a clean-up.

Our first ‘clean up our waterways’ session left the Chiptech team feeling shocked by the amount of rubbish washed up on the high tide line. Once the area was cleared of glass, plastics and bottles, we felt proud to have helped to protect birds and marine mammals from being injured (or worse) by these littered items.
