    What is Zero Waste?

    A Zero Waste community is one that avoids the generation of waste and where any discarded materials are designed as a resource for other processes, no materials are discharged to land air or water. Every sector has a role to play… we’re in this together.

    Tell us what works for you!

    Marrickville Council is trialling new off-leash dog exercise areas in parks around the Marrickville local government area. The trial runs for 12 months and feedback is welcomed throughout the year. The use of Council Parks by dog owners is encouraged by Council because it creates a positive sense of community. Dogs must be on a leash unless in one of Council's designated 'off-leash' areas -  some are operational full time and others are on a time-share basis. Join the discussion here.

    Street trees are a major community asset, vital to the health and beauty of our public domain. Like everything in nature, trees have a life cycle and Council needs to plan for their protection, maintenance and renewal.

    Thanks to everyone who took the Street Tree survey. View the Community Summary Key Findings Report.  The draft Master Plan which will be placed on public exhibition later this year for final community feedback before adoption.

  • We seek your advice, knowledge and ideas on verge gardens and sustainable streets.

    about 7 years ago
    Open uri20140423 9740 7err7x?1398257043

    In direct response to considerable community interest and grass-roots activism, Marrickville Council has adopted a new approach to verge management and maintenance. Verges, also known as nature-strips are important areas of public land that have the potential to provide ecosystem services and help create more liveable spaces.

    An ongoing process of collaboration with the community to manage and maintain footpath gardens will see more sustainable streetscapes emerge.

    Your knowledge, advice and feedback is important and we would like to hear from you!
