WSROC’s greenest councils

WSROC member councils Blacktown and Holroyd have won Local Government Environment Awards with Bankstown, Blue Mountains and Liverpool receiving commendations in their respective categories.

WSROC President Cllr Tony Hadchiti said “It is great to see WSROC councils excelling in so many areas.”

“These projects are examples of best practice in environmental management and the benefit of being part of WSROC is that all councils have an opportunity to discuss these success stories and apply the principles in their own LGA.”

“We all have issues to manage, whether this be asbestos, resource recovery, conservation or community education, and it makes sense to pool resources where commonalities exist,” he said.

The Local Government Awards for Environmental Excellence are sponsored by Local Government Super, NSW EPA, NSW Government Local Land Services, NSW Government Office of Environment and Heritage, NSW Government Health, NSW Government WorkCover, NSW Government Primary Industries, NSW Roadside Environment Committee and the Water Directorate.
