Port and South Hedland residents hope to impress a Tidy Town judge as he makes his way to town for the long-running competition.

Adam Woodhead from Keep Australia Beautiful is set to judge the 2017 Port and South Hedland Tidy Towns/Sustainable Communities entries between 2pm and 5pm on Monday, July 24.

The awards recognise and honour the efforts of communities in areas such as environmental education, heritage and culture, litter prevention and waste management, and more.

Care For Hedland Environmental Association chairwoman Kelly Howlett said the organisation was proud of the submissions received this year. “Tidy Towns/Sustainable Communities is so much more than Tidy Towns,” Ms Howlett said.

“It's a celebration of all things that make our community unique and celebrates all the different activities, large and small, that we as a community have done over the past 12 months.”
