Now in its 16th year, National Recycling Week is an established and highly regarded annual education and behaviour change campaign run by Planet Ark. National Recycling Week aims to improve the environmental benefits of kerbside, industrial and community recycling programs.
In 2011, NRW will focus on four campaign streams:
- Engaging students in learning about the environmental benefits of recycling, through the Schools Recycle Right Challenge.
- Increasing the number of businesses and workplaces involved in recycling, principally through the promotion of the Friday File Fling.
- Promoting community re-use and recycling initiatives, particularly through promotion of council, school and workplace-based Swap Parties as part of the Big Aussie Swap.
- Improving the understanding of kerbside recycling, principally through an educative Recycle Right Quiz hosted on RecyclingWeek.PlanetArk.org.
TIP: Always be sure to check with your local council on what the recycling guidelines are in your local government area.
