Our Environment

Through past landuses the Maitland environment has been degraded. Council is today working with the community to enhance and create a more sustainable environment for now and the future.

Impacts are being minimised through the use of good environmental practices and actions seen through Council and community activities under the Maitland Greening Plan, Schools Environment Program, Landcare activities, and various environmental partnerships.

Environment actions of the community and Council have been recognised over many years through the NSW Tidy Towns Awards and through the receipt of environmental grants to implement projects throughout the local environment.
