About Our Energy Future

Welcome to SSROC

The Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (SSROC) is an association of 11 councils spanning Sydney’s southern suburbs, eastern suburbs, CBD, and inner west and covering a third of the Greater Sydney’s population, or 1.7m people.

SSROC provides a forum through which our member councils can interact, exchange ideas and work collaboratively to solve regional issues and contribute to the future sustainability of the region.

We advocate on behalf of our region to ensure that the major issues are addressed by all levels of government. Our current focus includes the environment, transport, procurement, waste, and planning.

SSROC Regional Collaboration

SSROC undertakes regional collaborative projects, procurement, and key advocacy activities on behalf of our member councils. One such project is a collaboration with Veolia Australia and New Zealand to deliver the Mechanical and Biological Treatment (MBT) facility at Woodlawn Eco-precinct.

For SSROC and its member councils, this has been an almost 10-year journey from the initial concept to the delivery of a $100 million state-of-the-art MBT facility that in this financial year alone will save the six participating councils more than $9.5 million collectively. The facility will process 144,000T of waste per annum and will divert more than half of participating councils’ general waste tonnes away from landfill.
