Volunteers Benji (4), Baxter (1) and Josh Scott pick up rubbish at the Oreti Beach clean-up in Invercargill on Saturday.

More than 100 people attended the event to collect rubbish on the beach for Clean Up Week.

Tessa McKenzie, an administrator for organiser G. J. Gardner Homes Invercargill, said there was "great community involvement" from Southland schools, families, and church groups.

"This year, we are using old feed sacks and gardening gloves so that we're recycling everything. The Invercargill City Council also waived the cost of a skip, so we can put rubbish straight in the bin without using plastic bags."
