Residents Do Their Bit To Keep Our City Clean

Fairfield City residents dropped off more than 76 tonnes of waste at Council’s annual Chemical and Electronic Waste Drop Off Day over the weekend.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone commended residents who participated in the initiative and disposed of their unwanted e-waste and chemicals in a way that isn’t harmful to our environment.

“We had an excellent day with nearly 1,300 cars coming through the Fairfield Showground,” Mayor Carbone said. “I’d like to thank those residents who took part and for their patience during this busy day.

“Holding Chemical and E-waste Drop Off Day demonstrates Council’s commitment to making our City a clean and attractive place for the community and it’s great to see residents embracing this opportunity.

“We will continue to provide the community with clean-up opportunities at our next Spring Clean event on 22 October.

“Keep an eye out in your letterboxes for more information as the date gets closer.

“It’s important that we work together to make our City a clean and attractive place for everyone to enjoy and be proud of.”

A combined initiative of Fairfield City Council and the NSW Environment Protection Authority, the annual Chemical CleanOut Day addresses the community’s top priorities listed in Council’s 2016-2026 City Plan.

Total waste disposed:

  • Chemical waste: about 60 tonnes (36 tonnes more than last year)
  • E-waste: about 16 tonnes (4 tonnes more than last year)
  • Total waste: about 76 tonnes (40 tonnes more than last year)
