Cleaner Suburbs Awards

Brisbane City Council developed the Cleaner Suburb Awards (previously known as the Cleaner Communities Brisbane Awards) to champion the achievements of residents and groups who work together for a clean, green, sustainable city. Council has partnered with CitySmart to deliver the awards.

Cleaner Suburb Awards winners

A panel of industry experts judge the awards, except the People's Choice Litter Prevention Award which is voted on by the public.

The 2018 winners were announced at a ceremony hosted by the Lord Mayor at Brisbane City Hall on Wednesday 17 October.
