Individuals, groups and businesses in Brisbane are eligible to enter the Cleaner Suburbs Awards.

For an individual or group to have been eligible for the 2018 awards, the activity needed to have been carried out in Brisbane between 16 July 2017 – 30 June 2018, except for the Outstanding Clean Green Award which recognised long-term commitment to litter prevention and waste management.

The judges sometimes move a nominee to a different category if they feel it would be a better fit.

You can enter multiple categories, but a project can only be a finalist in one category.
