The City of Canada Bay has won the highest honour, the Overall 2021 Sustainable Cities Award, at the 2021 Keep Australia Beautiful NSW Sustainable Cities Awards Program held on today the Northern Beaches.

“When it comes to caring for our natural environment, we want to lead by example so I am honoured to accept this award on behalf of the City of Canada Bay.

“It is great to be recognised for our innovation and hard work in this area, and it shows a strong organisation-wide effort, great collaboration and a resolve to keep improving and enhancing our services for the community,” said City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas.

This is the third time the City of Canada Bay has won this award.

The City of Canada Bay was also a finalist in the following categories:

  • Communication & Engagement – for our Urban Canopy program.
  • Habitat & Wildlife Conservation – for our Backyards for Biodiversity project.
  • Recycled Organics – for our Compost Capers program.
  • Resource Recovery & Waste Minimisation – for our Multi-unit Dwelling (MUD) Contamination program.
