Wollombi Brook Rehabilitation

Howe Park Upgrades

Home to Singleton Golf Club, Howe Park Tennis Club, Singleton Strikers Soccer Club and a premium venue for cricket matches since the early 1900s, Howe Park has been the subject of some thoughtfully planned upgrades with significant sustainable outcomes for the Singleton Community!

In line with the Singleton Sustainability Strategy and an existing partnership with the Plastic Police Program, recycled plastic picket fencing was procured and installed - 3996 pickets to be exact!

To put this into perspective, approximately a ton of this product was used in the project - that's equivalent to a whopping 450,000 plastic packages and 55.08 cubic meters of waste diverted from our landfill!

If that wasn't enough, our Parks and Facilities team introduced Hydrawise systems across all parks and garden within the LGA. The system allows our team to control watering remotely. It also has built in smart watering triggers which work off local weather stations that can disable watering programs or increase watering programs, depending on the triggers to the current climatic conditions.

Burragan Recycle Shop

Sort the treasure from the trash! Complementing the Community Recycle Centre operations, and stepping up the commitment to reducing waste and increasing recycling, the Burragan Recycling Shop at Singleton Waste Management Facility opened for business 5 November 2016.

The shop name, Burragan is a local Aboriginal word meaning boomerang and reflects the nature of the items for sale returning back into use.

How it works

Facility staff divert items destined for landfill to the recycling shop, including building items from renovations such as doors, flooring and pavers, nuts, bolts, nails and household items such as furniture, knick knacks and bicycles.

Funds raised through the recycling shop operations assist with Councils disposal of expensive recyclables and problem wastes such as chemicals and e-waste.  These services are currently offered free of charge to the community.

This Singleton Council project was supported by the NSW Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
