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.
Make tap water your drink
Plastic bottles can take up to 1,000 years* to biodegrade. Choose to drink tap water and help us reduce plastic bottle waste across Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the Illawarra.
