The Manukau Beautification Charitable Trust


Our mission is to promote, support and undertake programmes, actions and initiatives to beautify Auckland.



Together with our community, beautifying and enriching our living environment.



In 2001 the Manukau City Council established The Manukau Beautification Charitable Trust and charged it with the task of dealing with the enormous amount of graffiti in the region.

Since then the Trust's proven record of efficient and effective tagging removal has resulted in an expansion of territory under Auckland Council's management, so that we are now contracted by Council to remove tagging in the city's six southern local board areas.

Over time our approach to beautifying the Manukau region has evolved to include much, much more than tagging removal.  Check out What We Do to find out about the many different ways we work to keep Manukau beautiful.



We're proud of what we do at the Trust.  Here are some of our successes to date:
