WasteSMART Brisbane Awards
Recognising individuals and groups going above and beyond to help make Brisbane a clean, green and sustainable city.
Brisbane City Council is proud to announce the winners of the WasteSMART Brisbane Awards with an impressive number of nominations received this year, all of them an inspiration in reducing waste in our city.
About the WasteSMART Brisbane Awards
Brisbane City Council developed the WasteSMART Brisbane Awards to recognise and celebrate the achievements of residents and groups who work together for a clean and green city. Brisbane City Council has partnered with the Brisbane Sustainability Agency to deliver the awards.
2023 WasteSMART Brisbane Awards
This year there were nine award categories including the All-Star Award recognising long-term commitment to waste prevention and reduction, and 12 awards, with a prize pool worth over $4,000.
The finalists were judged by a panel, except the People's Choice WasteSMART Award which was voted on by the public.
Twelve winners across nine categories were announced at the Lord Mayor’s Awards Ceremony at City Hall in November.
