Plastic free July | Mirage news

Inner West Council

The Inner West Council supports Plastic Free July, a global initiative that originated in Australia and is helping to reduce the use of single-use plastic.

Reducing the use of single-use plastics leads to cleaner and less polluted streets, parks and waterways.

This year’s Plastic Free July Council initiatives include:

• An Inner West Bubbler Card to help residents locate the 200+ bubblers in Inner West parks that can be used to fill reusable water bottles

• A photo competition. Residents are invited to enter a picture showing favorite reusable items with a short caption explaining how this will reduce plastic usage. The price is a basket full of reusable or plastic-free items. For more information, visit innerwest.nsw.gov.au/PlasticFreeJuly

• Free workshops at the Council’s Green Living Center on creative ways to reduce single-use plastic

The council has other tips on reducing plastic waste, including:

• Plastic containers to take away can be quickly rinsed out and thrown into the yellow recycling bin

• Soft plastic and plastic bags can be dropped off in the Redcycle rubbish bins in local supermarkets

Council has information on the disposal of all tricky waste at AZ: What goes where?

You will also find all the locations and dates for the handover of household chemicals and e-waste of the council, municipal recycling centers, weekend transfer stations, disposal of sharp objects and collection points for the container deposit system.
