The City will investigate opportunities to reduce single-use plastics and increase recycling in its day-to-day operations, after a decision made by Council on Tuesday 31 May.
The Elected Members’ Motion flagged the opportunity as Plastic Free July approaches, noting that reducing the City’s use of single-use plastics is an action in its Waste Plan 2020-2025
The plan also encourages a more circular economy while guiding the City in sustainable waste and recycling practices.
During Plastic Free July, the City will deliver a special event and roll out communications to improve education around plastic pollution and encourage people to switch single-use plastics for more environmentally-friendly alternatives.
Stay tuned on the City’s website and social media channels for more about upcoming Plastic Free July initiatives.
