The Liverpool central business district has become the major commercial center of south-west Sydney. Within the City of Liverpool area there are many open spaces and natural environment areas. A significant part of the City’s land area is still devoted to small hold agriculture, though this is slowly being enveloped by urban sprawl. The common, connecting web is the network of Waste Management services that have served the area tirelessly over the past years.
Waste and Recycling
Liverpool City Council is committed to supporting its resident population by providing waste disposal and increased recycling to reduce landfill and improve the quality of the local environment. Council supports waste disposal and recycling in Liverpool City. For example, the problem of unwanted and used paint has been solved, Liverpool’s City Council’s Community Recycling Center located at 99 Rose Street, Liverpool, is now an authorised Paintback collection point for trade painters and residents. Paintback is a national waste paint collection scheme developed and facilitated by the Australian paint manufacturing industry. Let’s work together for the future
Liverpool City Council, as part of the The Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (WSROC), is extremely proud to present the Western Sydney Regional Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2014-2017. Find out everything you need to know about your waste service including your garbage and recycling service days, how to apply for a larger/additional bin and special event bins. Council provides two free Household Clean Up Services to each residential property each calendar year for 3 separate categories: general bulky waste, metal waste and mattresses. Now you can drop off television and computer monitors, paints, motor and cooking oils, excess cardboard, polystyrene and much more. Drop off all types of household chemicals including herbicides, pesticides and acids at these events.
NSW households throw away a lot of edible food. Almost half of your household garbage bin is filled with wasted food every week. Find out how you can reduce your food waste. While a good rate of recycling is already being achieved through household kerbside collections in Liverpool, a large amount of recyclable material is still generated away from the home and is yet to be captured.
There is now a much greater expectation in the community that there will be access to recycling bins wherever they go. To meet this expectation Liverpool Council has introduced public place recycling initiatives at the following high-use public locations:
- Black Muscat Park, Chipping Norton
- Macquarie Street Mall, Liverpool CBD
- Ash Road Sporting Complex
- Bill Anderson Park, Keeps Creek
- Craik Park, Austral
- Daruk Park, Casula
- Dwyer Oval, Warwick Farm
- Ernie Smith Reserve, Moorebank
- Greenway Park, West Hoxton
- Hammondville Park, Hammondville
- Rosedale Park, Warwick Farm
- Woodward Park, Liverpool
All the public place recycling systems are red and yellow to reflect the recycling practices at home. The stations clearly feature images of the items they are designed to accept. For example, the red waste bins are for nappies, food scraps and plastic bags while the yellow bins are for plastic and glass bottles, aluminium cans and paper.
Public place recycling is a key factor in increasing the City of Liverpool’s recycling rate. These public place recycling bins will help reinforce this message and reduce valuable recyclables being sent to landfill. We ask that you use these bins correctly, only placing the right items in the right bins. It is important to note that the public place bin stations throughout the area are not for the disposal of commercial or household waste. Please handle and transport your materials carefully and safely. Protect your vehicle by placing items on a protective sheet or tray in the boot to capture any leakages or breakages.
The Community Recycling Centre facilitates the reprocessing and reuse of these materials and prevents them from entering landfill. By sorting your waste and taking it to your local Recycling Centre, you will:
- Help improve recycling rates
- Save water, energy and other valuable natural resources.
