Keep Australia Beautiful WA (KABWA) provides leadership in the field of litter prevention and reduction in Western Australia. Through community awareness and engagement, education, legislation and enforcement strategies, KABWA works to change the attitudes and behaviours of the community and strives for a litter-free WA.
By offering a range of innovative programs and initiatives for individuals and community groups as well as schools, businesses, community groups and local government authorities, KABWA hopes to inspire community action and positive environmental outcomes.
