Rena oil continues to wash up

Small amounts of oil from the Rena will continue to occassionally wash up on  Bay of Plenty beaches.

Rena Recovery continues to monitor the presence of oil spots along the Bay of Plenty coastline.

There have been some reports of weathered oil washing ashore of a small nugget size and there have also been small particles of oil found in the sand.

Remember to check your feet when you leave the beach to avoid staining floors.

If you come across oil, particularly any large clumps, call the Pollution Hotline on 0800 884 883.
