Leave nothing to waste! Together we can make Sydney and the world a better place to live!

Waste is an opportunity. An opportunity for new products, better production efficiency. Look for opportunities to remove or find a use for waste from the production of fashion, food and containers.

Sydney is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city with a diverse population featuring a rich history, internationally-recognised tourist attractions and an exciting calendar of events. The City of Sydney is the local government authority responsible for the city centre and more than 30 suburbs within our boundaries.

In 2007, we asked residents and businesses what they wanted to see happen over the next 20 years and beyond. The result is a collective vision for Sydney’s future development called Sustainable Sydney 2030, which will make Sydney a green, global and connected city. The City is fast becoming a leading environmental performer and our sustainability plan guides what we do – sustainable development is not just about the physical environment but it is also about fostering Sydney’s economy, society and culture into our plans.
