They’ve been cleaning up our waterways for the past year and the Sunshine Coast Litter Collective group is now cleaning up the awards.
A cheque presentation will take place at Sunshine Coast Council’s Ordinary Meeting on Wednesday 2 February to reward the efforts of the group’s members who took out top prize at the Healthy Waterways Awards last year.
The collective, that consists of local community groups, industry representatives and Sunshine Coast Council staff, won the ‘Seven News Clean Up Award’ and the overall ‘Ministers Grand Prize’, netting $11,500 in prize money.
This unique collaborative effort has removed 375,000 cubic litres of litter from Sunshine Coast Waterways over the last 12 months in what can only be described as a wonderful team effort.
