Fairfield City Council would like to thank the volunteers who participated in the Clean Up Australia Day event on Sunday 5 March.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said the event was a huge success and Council is proud of all the volunteers who took part on this important day.

“Despite the gloomy weather over the weekend, 397 volunteers put up their hands to ‘Clean Up’ at 14 locations across our City.

“Volunteers filled 270 bags of rubbish collected from our parks, streets, bushlands and waterways. Their commitment to beautifying our City is commendable, Mayor Carbone said.

“Our volunteers collected a combined total of 3.4 tonnes of rubbish across Fairfield City over the weekend. A huge achievement.

“Clean Up Australia Day should give residents inspiration to take pride in their local parks and streets. Let’s all work together to keep Fairfield City looking beautiful”, Mayor Carbone said.

Residents are encouraged to dispose of their waste correctly. Council offers a number of waste collection services such as two annual kerbside clean ups, annual household chemical collection, and the regular weekly bin collections. Council also provides a collection service for commercial and industrial waste.

The Recycling Drop Off Centre accepts a number of items free of charge such as car batteries, car motor oil, gas cylinders and more. Visit www.fairfieldcity.nsw.gov.au/waste_and_recycling for more information on these services.
