Brisbane City Council developed the WasteSMART Brisbane Awards to champion the achievements of residents, communities and businesses who undertake ‘waste smart’ activities and practices to create a clean and green Brisbane.  This new awards program has been introduced in 2020 to align with Council’s Waste Smart strategy for the city. CitySmart, Brisbane City Council's sustainability agency, has partnered to deliver the awards.


There are seven award categories and 11 awards, with a prize pool worth over $4,000.

The finalists are judged by a panel, except the People's Choice WasteSMART Award which is voted on by the public.

Nominations are now closed.

IKEA North Lakes and IKEA Logan are proud to support the 2020 Awards as a Silver Sponsor.
