This award is to recognise communities that have undertaken activities to prevent waste and use resources efficiently. When we talk about waste prevention, we’re not talking about recycling; we’re talking about not generating waste in the first place. This can be achieved by consuming less and using resources and materials efficiently.
This award is open to ANY COMMUNITY GROUP, not just Tidy Towns.
NATIONAL 1ST PRIZE: €1000
2 National Runner-Up Prizes: €500 Each
