Clean Britain Awards
Important Announcement - The Final Preparations

The annual CIWM Clean Britain Awards recognise and reward the achievements and contribution of Local Authority street scene teams and community volunteers in maintaining our public places and spaces.

We’ve been busy with the final preparations for the 2015 awards, there are a few important changes and dates.

  • Clean Britain Awards are now free and simple to enter for all UK Local Authority street scene and LEQ teams, community volunteer groups and guardians of public spaces and the final deadline for entries is 25 September 2015.
  • Local authority category winners, the national community award winner and the guardians of public spaces winner will be announced in October, including local and national publicity
  • Winners of the overall local authority, community volunteer and guardian of public spaces awards will be announced and presented by Nick Hewer, host of Countdown and Alan Sugar’s right-hand man on The Apprentice, on 5.11.15 at the prestigious Sustainability and Resource Awards ceremony, at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square

In the current climate, with budget pressures, LEQ teams have to be ever more resourceful and innovative to keep their public spaces and places clean and safe for everyone to enjoy. So it’s even more important that achievements get the recognition they deserve and their best practice is shared. Clean Britain enables teams to showcase their work and gain support amongst local communities, government, colleagues and their peers.

Here at CIWM we of course recognise the Local Authority budget constraints and have been working hard to make entry to the Clean Britain Awards totally free. With changes to the format and support from others we have managed to achieve this. There is no entry charge for the 2015 awards for either local authorities, community volunteer groups or guardians of public spaces.

Nobody deserves recognition more than community clean-up volunteers, so as well as the main annual award there is also a monthly community champion award, sponsored by Helping Hand, which includes a fantastic litter picking kit prize. For full details of these monthly awards click here.

We look forward to receiving your applications.
