Reduce your impact

Sydney Water is committed to protecting and caring for our beaches and waterways. During 2016-17 we removed nearly 2,000 cubic metres of litter from waterways, including one million plastic bottles.

Drink containers are a huge part of the problem. Drinking tap water is a simple way we can all personally reduce our reliance on single use plastics.
