SURVEY
Residents of Cabramatta are
wanted to take part in a survey to
help promote a smoke-free future.
The survey is part of the Cabramatta
Tobacco Project – a community-based
initiative designed to engage local
people, businesses and services to
promote a smoke-free lifestyle. The
survey kicked off at the Cabramatta
Moon Festival and asks residents of their
knowledge on smoking and its effects.
For more information or to take part
in the survey contact the Cabramatta
Community Centre on 9727 0477.
POOL SAFETY
TIPS FOR SUMMER
This summer, learn the basics of
swimming, valuable pool safety
guidelines and correct your stroke
technique at Fairfield City Council’s
Leisure Centres.
Council holds Learn to Swim or squad classes at
its Leisure Centres in Cabramatta, Prairiewood
and Fairfield. The classes cater for people of all
abilities and all ages from six months to adults.
More advanced squad classes are also available
for swimmers looking to improve their strength
and fitness levels, while working on technique.
Details are available at the Fairfield, Prairiewood
or Cabravale Leisure Centres.
While we are talking about pool safety,
Fairfield City Council reminds pool owners of
the importance of learning CPR, a skill that
can save lives.
According to the Royal Life Saving National
Drowning Report 2012, swimming pools
account for the largest number of drowning
deaths for children aged zero to four.
Book a CPR course with St John Ambulance on
1300 360 455. For more pool safety information,
contact Fairfield City Council on 9725 0222.
The forum, presented by consultant dietician Rosemary Mifsud, will cover ways to
enjoy the food and festivities of the holiday period, being mindful of intake, and
ensuring balanced food options when hosting a celebration. Time and venue are yet
to be confirmed. To register or find out more information, phone Fran on 9725 0877

NEw PAVING IN
SMITHFIELD/
wETHERILL
PARk
Workers and residents in the
Smithfield and Wetherill Park suburbs
now have a more effective and
accessible network of path paving
thanks to a recent Council project.
The Smithfield/Wetherill Park Paving Project
provides clear paving networks enabling
residents to walk to public transport and
lunchtime destinations.
Thicker, reinforced path paving
was constructed where it
was required, including near
T-Way stations, bus stops and
lunchtime destinations.
Through the project, thicker, reinforced
path paving was constructed where
evidence suggested it was required,
including near T-Way stations, bus stops
and lunchtime destinations.
Fairfield City residents are being
encouraged to walk or cycle when taking
short trips through the introduction of
Active Transport Signage.
To make walking and cycling easier, Fairfield City
Council is trialling a new program of installing
signage at key points along cycle ways, allowing
residents to see how far it is to their destination
and how long it will take to walk or cycle.
New path locations include:
• The Horsley Drive,
between the T-Way station on Canley Vale
Road and McIlwraith Street
• McIlwraith Street (East side),
from The Horsley Drive, connecting
to existing path paving
• Victoria Street (South side), between
Daniel Street and T-Way station.
NEw PLAYGROUNDS AND
PARkS IMPROVEMENTS
A garden that tests your senses is just one of the standout features
for the new Barbara St Children’s Playground in Fairfield.
The Active Transport Signage will be
installed in Cabramatta, Fairfield West
and Canley Vale by the end of 2012 as a
pilot to trial the
effectiveness
of the signs. If
successful, the
signs will be rolled
out across the city
in coming years.
Ai-Chan Nguyen and Zavier Taroco enjoy the new Barbara Street Children’s Playground in Fairfield.
ACTIVE TRANSPORT SIGNAGE
The playground was designed and constructed
by Fairfield City Council specifically for the
enjoyment of pre-school aged children.
The playground is part of Council’s Open
Space Strategy that identified several suburbs
within Fairfield City where there is an
undersupply of open spaces.
Council has also been working to deliver the
Parks Improvement Program, a $13 million
initiative that involves the upgrade of public
parks and open spaces in the Fairfield LGA.
The most recent parks to be upgraded as
part of the project include: Dwyer Park,
Wakeley; Wheller Park, Wetherill Park;
Dashmere Park, Bossley Park; Aplin Park,
Bonnyrigg Heights; Crosio Park, Bonnyrigg;
Brenan Park, Smithfield; Lindum Park, St Johns

CREEkS GROUP
LOOkING FOR
RECRUITS
Are you passionate about the
environment and looking for a
way to help?
The Fairfield Creeks and Wetlands Group
is looking for new members. The group
is comprised of community members
and run by Fairfield City Council. It is
committed to the restoration of the City’s
waterways and undertakes a variety of
projects across the City. The group meets
on a regular basis with a Council Officer
to discuss the management of the creeks
and wetlands and brings ideas to Council
for future projects. They also regularly
volunteer to remove weeds, rubbish and
plant trees for the projects. To join the
group, or for more information contact
Council’s Senior Natural Resources
Officer on 9725 0758 or by email to
tjohnson@fairfieldcity.nsw.gov.au.

The Fairfield Creeks and wetlands Group
is recruiting volunteers.
Tracking the illegal dumping of
materials to a building site in Vaucluse
is just one of the many successes
Council has achieved in its fight
against illegal rubbish dumping.
Council’s Waste Enforcement Group runs
extensive investigations and has been
successful in charging illegal dumpers.
Since the establishment of
the Waste Enforcement Group
18 months ago, Council has
experienced a significant
reduction in illegal rubbish
dumping.
A significant number of illegal dumping
offences committed around Fairfield City
come from people and businesses from other
areas around Sydney. As well as investigating
instances of rubbish being illegally dumped,
the Waste Enforcement Group Officers are
also proactively educating residents on what
they can and can’t do with their rubbish.

MULCH SERVICE
For the past three months,
Fairfield City residents have been
making the most of the free mulch
being offered by Council.
The Residential Tree Branch Mulching
Recycling Service allows residents to drop
off their tree branches at the Recycling
Drop Off Centre in Wetherill Park every
Saturday between 8.30am and 3.30pm.
Alternatively, some areas are able to utilise
the kerb-side pick-up service as part of
Council’s ‘Clean ‘n’ Green’ Household
Rubbish Collection Service. The mulch is
made from branches using a new Council
machine. In return for branches, residents
can pick up free mulch from the Recycling
Drop Off Centre. Mulch is also used by
Council to beautify its parks and reserves.
Council has a new tree branch mulching
recycling service available to Fairfield
City residents.
SUSTAINABLE RESOURCE CENTRE
HELPS BUILD FAIRFIELD CITY
Residents may be surprised to learn
that all the roads around Fairfield
City are made almost entirely from
recycled materials. That’s because
the road base (crushed rock) used
underneath the tarseal is produced
and sourced from Council’s Sustainable
Resource Centre in Wetherill Park.
The Centre has been successfully operating
from its Hassall Street site for the past 20
years, collecting and distributing thousands of
tonnes of material that creates the City’s roads,
footpaths, stormwater pipes, and gutters.
In addition, all revenue made by the Centre
is given back to the community by offsetting
annual rate payments and funding a number of
community projects.
The Sustainable Resource Centre also recycles
materials brought in by businesses and
residents, which are used to build and improve
the City’s infrastructure.
The Centre collects and sells a number of
different materials including concrete, asphalt,
aggregates, top soil, bricks, sand and road base.

The Bonnyrigg Town Centre Park project
provides several environmental benefits to
the area, including returning a creek to the
site. The storm water is then filtered as it
travels downstream. Natives were planted
to increase biodiversity and open space was
created for public use. Access through the
park was increased with walkways and cycle
ways linking the local shopping centre and
T-Way station to the surrounding suburbs.
A car park has also been constructed.

around the City – two Park and Ride Commuter Express services, and two Hail and Ride
community bus services. The Park and Ride Commuter Express service operates weekday
mornings (6.30am to 9.30am) and evenings (4.30pm to 7.30pm). The service transports
commuters from Fairfield Showground to Fairfield Railway Station, and from the Showground
