Election Commitments to a stronger Community

2016 Federal Election Commitments > Community


ACT Labor believes in Canberra – we know how great a city this is, and we will work to make it even better.


Better homes, better communities and better suburbs

ACT Labor will continue to invest in our suburbs, green spaces, roads, and public transport to keep Canberra as the most liveable city in the world.

We are very proud of this city, and we all want it to look its best.

ACT Labor supports an active, healthy local community and we have a strong track record of making the right investments in suburbs across Canberra to support local sporting groups.

ACT Labor will deliver green bins to every house that wants one, across Canberra, starting in Weston Creek and Kambah, followed by Tuggeranong in 2017, with the rest of Canberra to receive the service in the coming term of the Assembly.

And we will build on this convenient green bin service by establishing a hard waste pick up service so that unwanted furniture, TVs and other heavy items can be removed and reused.
