Due to record rainfall, we're behind in our mowing schedule. We're unable to use our mowers while the ground is saturated and the long grass takes longer to mow. Our crews are working hard to catch up. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Living sustainably for a greener future

In celebration of Sustainable House Day this Sunday, we are sharing programs that can help you live more sustainably, and make a positive difference for the environment.

Knox households accounts for 18% of total greenhouse emissions in our community. As part of our recently adopted Climate Response Plan 2021-2031, we will be providing support to help our community to lower emissions and reach net zero by 2040.

There are small and practical steps we can take around the home to effectively reduce our carbon footprint. This includes composting food waste, improving energy efficiency by switching to LED light globes or using a reverse-cycle air conditioner for heating. These small steps can lead to bigger actions such as installing solar panels, or transitioning away from gas appliances. An added bonus of living sustainably is the cost savings associated with using energy efficient appliances and renewable energy.

We offer a number of programs and events to help you live more sustainably:
