Sustainable Development is an essential part in Today’s fast-paced and rapidly advancing world. We must ensure that our use of resources does not negatively impact future generations. Council has therefore developed a number of plans to contribute in conserving as many resources as possible. For example, we are involved in Plastic Bag and Waste Management, Recycling old Mobile Phones, City Clean and Environmental Education for Children of all ages.
