Plastic Free July 

Plastic Free July® helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution. This helps to ensure we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities by choosing to refuse single-use plastics. Last year more than 300 million people globally participated. 

To sign up to Platic Free July and TAKE THE CHALLENGE 

 

Local Councils across Australia are taking the Plastic Free July Challenge, reducing their own plastic use and connecting homes, workplaces, schools, and businesses to spread solutions to plastic pollution. 

As a Council Member, The Town of East Fremantle is supporting our community to choose to refuse single-use plastics directly, and doing our part to alleviate the recycling crisis, reducing landfill waste, and mitigating the effects of climate change.

 

Within Council, we’re pledging to make a difference by cutting down our plastic consumption at Council events in line with the Town's Sustainable Events Policy. Town staff will be encouraged to take on the challenge as well as Mayor O'Neil who participated in 2020. 

 

Ongoing initiatives to encourage waste avoidance include the rollout of the three-bin FOGO system, bin tagging, educational workshops, the establishment of a Cloth Nappy Rebate, special recycling programs at the Townhall as well as the ongoing partnership with the Fremantle Recycling Centre.
