Help Celebrate National Recycling Week 2015

[Insert MP name and title] and Planet Ark are encouraging Australians to get the answers to their big recycling questions including what are the common mistakes through participation in National Recycling Week.

"Recycling not only helps the planet but is good for people and profits too," says [Insert MP name and title]. "It is a constantly evolving industry, but a vital stage in the chain is the very first one – us - so [Insert electorate] residents can follow a few simple steps to help improve our recovery of these materials."

Visit or call the National Recycling Hotline on 1300 733 712 to discover the many ways you can get involved in Planet Ark's National Recycling Week events and initiatives, whether at home, school or work.
