Toodyay Tidy Towns Committee - National Winners 2015

Toodyay has been declared the national winner of the Keep Australia Beautiful, Australian Tidy Towns Awards 2015 at a prestigious event held in Sheffield Tasmania on Friday 27 February. 

This is a huge accolade for Western Australia and only the fourth time that this State has been accorded that honour. Australia's Tidiest Town Awards were introduced in 1990 and past national winners from WA include Denmark (1998); Wyalkatchem (2003); and Collie (2006). 

According to the national judge, Jill Grant, Toodyay is a dynamic and environmentally aware community with friendly, enthusiastic and dedicated residents that care for their unique cultural and natural heritage. She said that "volunteers play an enormous role in ensuring the town achieves positive social, environmental and economic outcomes. The many anti-litter, historical and environmental groups work in partnership with the Toodyay Tidy Towns group across a range of projects and are well supported by the Shire of Toodyay." 

Amazingly, Toodyay also won three of the eight national category awards at that event! They were: the 'Dame Phyllis Frost' Litter Prevention Award; the Resource Recovery & Waste Management Award; and the Environmental Protection & Innovation Award. This was significant recognition of the community's innovative approach to developing their sustainable community as well as their approach to protecting their environment, managing litter, recycling and disposing non-recyclable materials appropriately.
