Continuing the charge towards a clean and green city, City of Canterbury Bankstown has installed an additional eight water refill stations at local parks in a bid to cut waste and help the environment.
City of Canterbury Bankstown together with Sydney Water made the move to water refill stations two years ago, since then more than 140,000 litres of drinking water has been dispensed.
Mayor Khal Asfour said an impressive 300 kilograms of plastic waste was avoided from landfill, and $500,000 in unnecessary purchases of plastic bottles was saved by the community.
“It just goes to show that the CBCity community cares about our environment and are committed to protecting it,” he said.
“Every bit counts. By using these stations, residents and visitors help reduce the environmental impact of bottled water, and reduce the amount of litter going to landfill.”
The new water refill station at Clemton Park is already having a huge impact on the community.
Vice President of local Rugby League club St. George Dragons said the refill stations are convenient and overly popular at the club.
“They provide the players with unlimited water while training, as well as an understanding of reusing their water bottles,” George Kalifa said.
“The football season hasn’t even started yet, however we’ve seen an immense number of club members bring their bottles from home and use the refill stations, and I have no doubt it will become more common as the season continues.”
The recently installed water refill stations can be found at the following parks:
