Join the 'Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' & MobileMuster Collection Programs
Setting up collection stations for a range of recyclable items is an easy way to promote recycling in your workplace. Depending upon the structure of your workplace, collection stations can be accessible to staff as well as customers.
To make things easy, set up collections for items that already have established recycling programs. Some easily collected and recycled items include:
- Printer Cartridges
- Mobile Phones
- Coffee pods, mailing satchels and cleaner packaging through TerraCycle
You can find more information about the environmental and social benefits of recycling at RecyclingWeek.PlanetArk.org and you can find a full list of the local drop off locations for all of them at BusinessRecycling.com.au for businesses or by calling Planet Ark's Recycling Hotline on 1300 733 712.
Posters are available to download (below) that can be used to promote your collection and to label your collection station.
- Use signage, meeting announcements, newsletters and/or emails to remind staff and customers about the collections.
- Feedback to staff (and customers) the quantity of items collected, and if possible the environmental benefits of the collection.
- If there is space consider retaining the collections as a permanent service to staff (and customers).
