This is a high achievement and recognises the outstanding commitment of local people participating in a range of environmental sustainability initiatives.
“Greenbushes was competing against much larger communities, so it is a real credit to the number of volunteers who contributed. This level of volunteering shows a strong community spirit and demonstrates the positive aspects of living in a small community,” Mr Redman said.
“The Greenbushes biodiversity project is an outstanding example of conservation outcomes and I am pleased that the Schwenkes Dam nature viewing boardwalk benefited from Royalties for Regions Community Chest Funding,” Mr Redman said.
The Water without Waste project has been an innovative and hugely successful project spreading the message of reducing the use of plastics; and the sculptures made from recycled materials are imaginative and prominent entry statements to the town.
“Well done to all the dedicated volunteers and congratulations on winning the 2016 Tidy Towns Award.”
