THE East Coast town of Triabunna has been named Tasmania’s Keep Australia Beautiful Tasmanian Tidy Town for 2015.

The former timber town and fishing hotspot will now represent the State at the national awards.

Two other Tasmanian centres were also honoured at a ceremony in Westbury today - Glenorchy which won the KAB Tasmania Sustainable Cities Award and Dover Beach which took out the gong for the cleanest beach.

KAB Tasmania executive officer Geoff Marsh said the Triabunna community took enormous pride in its town.

“The town has taken a collaborative approach to litter management and recycling, while all age groups across the community are actively involved in

natural environment conservation,” he said.

“While it has faced much publicised significant economic and community challenges it has done so with innovation and collaboration to emerge as a

revitalised and stronger community with a sustainable future.”

Glenorchy was recognised for initiating many sustainability programs in response to its community-driven “designing our future” strategic plan.

Winners in the Sustainable Schools Awards were Triabunna District School, Albuera St Primary, Geneva Christian College, Scotch Oakburn College and

Penguin District School.

Population category awards were announced as follows:

 Under 500 – Trial Harbour

 501 – 1000 – Oatlands

 1000 – 2000 – Cygnet

 5000 – 15,000 – Huonville

 More than 15,000 – Brighton

The KAB Community Citizen of the Year Award was presented to Sue Smedley

for her “outstanding contribution to her community through many projects, but particularly those relating to the history of Stanley”.
