Greenacre’s Tristania Grove has been named Canterbury-Bankstown’s best recycling street.
An audit, carried out by Council as part of its award-winning Recycle Right program, saw Tristania Grove residents take top spot for doing the right thing when sorting their household rubbish.
Administrator Richard Colley congratulated households in Tristania Grove for their recycling efforts.
"It’s fantastic to see our residents embracing good environmental practices, especially Tristania Grove residents, who have set the bar high for others to follow," Mr Colley said.
"The whole street managed to complete the Recycle Right program in just three inspections, rather than the usual six inspection minimum we carry out."
This year alone, Council officers have already reached more than 2,850 different households in a bid to reduce contamination rates in yellow bins.
Long time Tristania Grove resident, Grace Bucciarelli, was excited to learn of the recognition for her street.
"It’s nice to know the rest of our street is just as conscious of recycling as our family is, and that we’re all trying to have a positive impact on the environment," Mrs Bucciarelli said.
"It doesn’t take much effort to do recycling the proper way. It takes less than a minute to separate the rubbish every time I go to the bin."
Other notable recycling champions include Joan Street, Chester Hill, Nelle Street, Padstow, Gascoigne Street, Yagoona, Bell Street, Panania, and Ayres Crescent, Georges Hall.
