Thirty-three WA communities have been named as finalists for the State title in the Keep Australia Beautiful Council’s 2020 Tidy Towns Sustainable Communities Awards.

Among them are Narrogin, pictured, and Boddington, selected as finalists across a range of categories.

Both towns are finalists in the categories of litter prevention, as well as waste management, community action and wellbeing.

In addition, Narrogin was named as a finalist in the categories of heritage and culture, and general appearance. Boddington was also shortlisted for the environmental sustainability and environmental education awards.

“The judges across all categories had a real job selecting the finalists in a quality and diverse field,” KABC chairman Michael Aspinall said.

“Every community taking part can feel proud of helping make our State even more beautiful and for promoting positive environmental, social and economic changes that lead to a more sustainable future.”

The State winner and category winners will be announced on November 27 in Perth.
