The SHOROC councils and Kimbriki congratulate our residents of Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah on being great recyclers, but there’s still more to do.

The Hon. Rob Stokes MP Minister for the Environment and Member for Pittwater together with Cr Jacqueline Townsend SHOROC President and Mayor of Pittwater released Too Good to Waste the draft overarching waste strategy for Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah councils for community comment.
Avoiding waste, sustainably managing the waste that is generated and recovering resources from waste are important to our community and environment. So much so that the four SHOROC councils – Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah – have developed Too Good to Waste – a regional waste avoidance and resource recovery strategy.
Two major initiatives are in the planning to maximise resource recovery and minimise waste going to landfill: Sustainable infrastructure solutions; and New regional household waste service
The strategy has a range of priorities and actions that councils, Kimbriki and SHOROC can take to help us all take responsibility for our waste, and do our part to reduce, reuse and recycle and rethink our decisions.
