Are there amazing events or actions taking place in your regional community? Then Tidy Towns may well be the program that will best recognise community effort and inspire residents to take it to the next level.
Tidy Towns Sustainable Communities is an annual awards program that acknowledges and celebrates regional communities who foster sustainable behaviours and a litter-free environment.
It's easy to get involved.
