Waveney District Council and partners Waveney Norse have been awarded four stars by the British Cleaning Council at the Clean Britain Awards, held at the NEC in Birmingham.
It is only their first year of entering, but feedback from inspectors was encouraging, giving the overall impression that Waveney is clean and tidy and the sort of place people would want to visit.
Mike Daniels, cleansing service manager for Waveney Norse, said that taking on board the judges' comments and with the continued support of the public via the Keep Lowestoft Tidy campaign they hope to gain five stars or one of the top awards next year.
