SUNSHINE COAST COUNCIL NAMED AUSTRALIA’S GREENEST

Sunshine Coast Council Named Australia’s Greenest

Media Release - April 2010

Sunshine Coast Council has made a bold commitment to become Australia's most sustainable region and has been recognised by Clean Up Australia as the nation’s greenest council.

Clean Up Australia Chairman Ian Kiernan AO today announced the national winner of the Local Council Award for 2010 and recognised the leadership of Sunshine Coast Council.

“Sunshine Coast Council has set out to make the region a model of sustainability,” Mr Kiernan said.

Key to the council’s vision is the development of a regional waste management strategy. Mr Kiernan said that in order to achieve this vision, an effective education program called Waste 2 Resource has been established.

“The Waste 2 Resource Program has a goal to reach as many residents, schools, businesses and industry of the Sunshine Coast as possible.”

“Council staff are to be congratulated for their commitment to the Sunshine community and environment.”

The Local Council Award was established to encourage councils to contribute to Clean Up Australia Day in outstanding ways and to implement long-term waste initiatives.
 
As the national winner, Sunshine Coast Council receives $5000 towards a community based environmental project, donated by one of Clean Up Australia’s major sponsors Veolia Environnement.
