Waste Avoidance

Council aims to achieve 70% diversion of waste from landfill by 2022. Here's how you can help: 

Before throwing something out consider giving it away to an opportunity shop or a re-use and repair cooperative such as Reverse Garbage, The Bower or Cycle Re-cycle (bicycles).

You may also like to try eBay or Gumtree or Facebook groups such as Lower North Shore (Sydney) Free Stuff & Low Waste Living.  There are also many charitable organisations such as St.Vincent De Paul Society, The Salvation Army and Australian Red Cross. You can also register your garage sale with Council for free advertisement.

You may be surprised what some people will happily take off your hands.
