About the award
Each Australia Day communities are invited to participate in the NSW Local Citizen of the Year Awards. The awards recognise outstanding achievements by individuals and organisations within local communities.
The NSW Environmental Citizen of the Year Award recognises outstanding efforts by individuals or organisations to preserve the environment, reduce litter and improve recycling, or use the Return and Earn scheme in an innovative way to fundraise for a meaningful cause.
The award is sponsored by Return and Earn – the largest litter reduction program ever undertaken in NSW – because these finalists share Return and Earn’s ultimate goal of improving the environment across NSW.
Congratulations to this year's finalists.
