Brisbane announces Spotless Suburbs & Schools winners

David Curtin - Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Brisbane’s Spotless Suburbs and Spotless Schools competition winners were announced today.

The competition is an initiative of Keep Australia Beautiful Queensland in partnership with the Brisbane City Council and SITA Australia.

Now in its fourth year the aim of the competition is to encourage a clean, green and litter-free capital city of Queensland.  The annual awards recognise local community groups and individuals’ efforts and commitment to a clean, green local environment.

The winners are selected from the Brisbane city’s 26 council Wards after expert judging in 7 categories. Each councillor can enter their top two projects in one or two suburbs, and this year schools – both primary and secondary - were also eligible to enter in each category.

The overall Brisbane Spotless Suburb 2012 winners are:

BRISBANE SPOTLESS PRIMARY SCHOOL – PARKIINSON WARD  - ALGESTER S. S.

BRISBANE SPOTLESS SECONDARY SCHOOL – WISHART WARD -  MT. GRAVATT S.H.S.

BRISBANE’S SPOTLESS SUBURB – CENTRAL WARD – WILSTON GRANGE

The Right Honorable, the Lord Mayor, Cr Graham Quirk,  announced the winners today at a ceremony in King George Square, acknowledging all the winners for their excellence in community pride and recognising their commitment and enthusiasm in being a Spotless Suburb or School entrant. 

More details on each of the category winners is available on the Keep Australia Beautiful Queensland website www.kabq.org.au
