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 awards program was introduced in 2020 to align with Council’s Waste Smart strategy for the city. Brisbane Sustainability Agency has partnered to deliver the awards.
