It is part of the Council’s Living Sustainability strategy, through the process of achieving net zero emissions plans, urban green strategies, plans and programs.
Also guided by the adopted Net Zero Emissions and Water Efficiency Strategy, the Council seeks to achieve net zero. Therefore, it developed six strategies to make Hawkesbury Local Government Area more sustainable.
Named ‘Towards a zero-waste community,’ the fourth strategy intends to rethink waste as a resource and diversion of waste and a circular economy approach.
