Zero Waste

Thank you for recycling

The City of Sydney has taken out a top award for leadership and innovation in waste recycling at this year’s Green Globe Awards. We couldn't have done it without your recycling efforts.

Read more about the award and our sustainability vision.

Zero Waste is the City's campaign to reduce waste send to landfill and keep streets clean. We do this by providing services that make it easy for you to recycle more and do the right thing.
