Welcome to Holroyd's Environmental Headquarters!

Here you will find ways to reduce waste and dispose of your waste lawfully, as well as learn a thing or two about how this affects our environment. Waste is a big deal when it comes to our environment. It’s not just about finding the space to put it all, but is also about dealing with the contamination of land and the creation of more greenhouse gases from all the waste that goes into landfill. You will also find other useful information about our environment, how it’s connected to public health and pollution, and what it means to live sustainably.

So you have an item you want to dispose of but not sure where it goes? This section identifies where these items can be placed. Keep in mind that this section relates to Holroyd City, so if you are visiting the website from outside this area, you will need to check with your local council about their waste services.

Placing unwanted items or rubbish on the nature strip or other public land without being allocated a Council Clean Up, is called illegal dumping. Find out why.
