National Recycling Week
Recycling aids in the fight against pollution, resources going to landfill and global warming by reducing the amount of new materials we use to sustain our lifestyle.


Planet Ark's National Recycling Week (Monday 12 to Sunday 18 November 2018) is the annual opportunity for councils, workplaces, schools and individuals to brush up on their knowledge and become successful recyclers.

Australians are willing recyclers with 90% of us agreeing that it is the right thing to do. However, recycling is a constantly evolving industry, with new initiatives and technologies in continual development which can lead to confusion about what can and can't be recycled. 

Planet Ark's new research for National Recycling Week 2018 titled From Waste War to Recycling Reboot explores the impact of the War on Waste and China's waste policies on Australia, the opportunities and positive waste stories emerging and the tools making it easier for you to reboot recycling.



There are lots of ways to get involved in National Recycling Week:
