Summer series

Sydney Water removes more than one million plastic bottles from Sydney’s waterways each year, and with summer weather attracting thousands of visitors to our beaches, it’s a timely reminder we all have a part to play in keeping our waterways plastic and litter free.

Our clean up crew

Beat the Bottle

From Kiama to Bondi, Pennant Hills to Wallacia.

There's a clean up crew near you.

By involving the community in these clean-ups across Sydney, we will help bring more awareness to the issue and inspire people to ‘be the change’ that they wish to see for our waterways and oceans.
