More Green Spaces
The North Shore is a dense area. With an increasing population, now more than ever the Council should be looking to increase the amount of green space in our community. Be it reclaiming land, constructing urban green spaces or expanding our existing green areas.
There are many ways to ensure the people of North Sydney have plenty of space to meet, exercise, play sports or to simply get outside.
Clean and Well Maintained Waterways
Soft Plastic Recycling
Australia wide only 9% of soft plastics are recycled. So what happens to the rest? Up to 130,000 tonnes of plastic will end up in our waterways. If not it usually ends up in land full where it will not decompose for years and even decades.
Expanded Recycling Centres
Urban Greenery Projects
Unfortunately, since 2008 our tree canopy has declined by 7%.
