Coffs projects shortlisted for NSW sustainability award

COFFS Harbour is well represented at the 2015 Keep NSW Beautiful Blue Star Sustainability Awards.

Four projects from the Coffs Coast have been shortlisted for the awards that celebrate the efforts of communities to keep their regions sustainable.

In the Waste Less, Recycle More category, the "Coffs Coast trims waste from the hem up" is a worthy finalist. In 2005, Coffs Harbour City Council partnered with Nambucca and Bellingen Shire Councils to form Coffs Coast Waste Services for the collection and processing of waste for more than 40,000 households.

The "Rare frog worth saving" project has been nominated in the Habitat and Wildlife Guardianship Award category.

The project is pioneered by the Bishop Druitt College Student Environment Group, which has worked on the regeneration of local waterways.

"Duelling spray cans sees art winning out" has also been selected for the Hey Tosser Litter Action Award, while Year 12 Bishop Druitt College student Giles Tennant is up for the Young Environmental Achievement Award.
