Recycle your drink bottles & cans for prizes, with our new 'reverse vending' recycling machines at Circular Quay & Chinatown. A reverse vending machine works the opposite way to a vending machine - you put in an empty drink container and you get to choose a reward for your recycling efforts. We've had some great feedback already and many have chosen a free bus ticket in exchange for recycling a drink bottle! Find out more here: #recyclingpays

Hear Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz and a panel of experts discuss the price of inequality and what happens to communities when the issue is ignored.

Can we improve social wellbeing and address relative inequality while creating productive economies and liveable places with good public transport, social infrastructure and services?

How do we create well-connected communities that improve our physical and mental health?

The City of Sydney is developing a Social Sustainability Discussion Paper to consider the social issues that shape our communities – and ways we can all share the responsibilities and rewards of creating a better, fairer society.
