Rubbish piles up on West Coast beaches

Decades worth of rubbish is washing up on West Coast beaches following bad weather.

Heavy rain eroded the Fox landfill, so waste from it is flowing into the Fox River. Volunteers and officials are working to clear the trash but more keeps coming. 

Local Okarito resident Mike Bilodeau has been helping in the tidy up and tells us what it’s like.
