We asked and you answered. Our community told us that you want Council leadership in waste and recycling . That means:

  • protecting our natural environment
  • reducing waste going to landfill
  • finding better ways to manage waste for the future.

We are ready and willing to take on the challenge. We’ve written our Waste Strategy and are now asking – how low can we go?

Currently, 50% of our household waste ends up in landfill!  Our Target: reduce waste going to landfill by a further 30% to achieve NSW Government targets.

This is where you come in, we need your help and we’re challenging residents to reduce their waste with our ‘How Low Can You Go’ campaign.

Reducing waste and creating a clean and green Sutherland Shire starts at home.

By making a few small changes at home, you can help reduce your waste and play a part in creating a more sustainable Sutherland Shire.

Take on our waste challenge. Let's see How Low Can You Go?

Our Waste Strategy outlines what we're already doing in the waste space and how we're planning to reach our targets.
