To help protect our local environment Council participates in a number of key programs, which are listed below. For further advice please contact the Project Officer Natural Environments at the City of Mitcham on 8372 8853.

Clean Site

The City of Mitcham are working to create a clean, environmental friendly housing development in accordance with the Public Nuisance and Litter Control Act 2016 and EPA Act 1993. This means working with all builders in the development and asking them to please help protect the environment by implementing the following measures:

  • Removing mud on road - sweep up (don't wash up!).
  • Recycle or re-use building materials.
  • Use sediment fences, hay bales or bunds to reduce waterway pollution.
  • Use a single gravel exit/entry point to sites.

This is an important step in protecting our environment and our water ways. For more information or to report irresponsible construction please contact the Project Officer Natural Environments at the City of Mitcham on 8372 8853.
