Planet Ark’s Schools Recycle Right Challenge Competition is now open! Help school students recycle right from the start this National Recycling Week 2012.

To enter, students from Kindergarten to Year 8 in any primary or high school in Australia must recycle as much as they can at home over any one week period. Every class that recycles more than 50% of specific packaging materials used at home will have the chance to win some great environmental prizes sponsored by Tetra Pak. Eligible classes will go in the draw to win native animal ‘adoptions’ for every student, and donations will be made on behalf of the school to a zoo or animal sanctuary in their state or territory. Entries must be submitted before 5pm (AEDT) Wednesday 28 November 2012.

Find out more or call the Recycling Hotline on 1300 733 712 if you have any questions about the competition or other National Recycling Week events.
