Sustainability initiatives

The City of Stirling strives to build a sustainable future for the community, protecting and improving the environment by using natural resources wisely, reducing the impact of our activities on the environment and protecting wildlife and natural habitats.

Waterwise Council

The City was recently awarded gold waterwise status at the Water Corporation’s Waterwise Awards.

This award recognises our innovative water efficiency initiatives and successful delivery of our Central Irrigation Management System (CIMS).

Balloons - don't let them go!

When helium balloons are released into the sky they eventually freeze and shatter, falling back to earth as litter.

These leftover peices often land in the ocean and look like jellyfish or squid - a favourite food of many fish, whales, turtles and seabirds. Even balloons labelled as 'biodegradable' can take between one to four years to degrade, leaving plenty of time for them to be eaten or to entangle wildlife.

The City of Stirling asks people to not release helium balloons at our reserves and facilities. Please help us to keep our City's sky and sea litter-free and safe for all animals.

For more information, view the helium balloon fact sheet here.
