Councils have always played a central role in Planet Ark's National Recycling Week, providing much of the community-level recycling education and services.

For National Recycling Week (7th-13th November 2016), we are developing a research report titled, So You Think You Can Recycle? which asks Australians to reflect on whether they are doing all they can. It will include results of the council survey undertaken recently.

To help you organise your own council events we have developed the Council Activity Guide with ideas from councils around the country. Each activity listed includes information to help you propose, plan and run it, along with comments from the contributing council.

Download the Council Activity Guide.

Activities could include:

  • MRF or facility tours,
  • Workshops,
  • Community stalls,
  • PR, media and advertising (Planet Ark will provide adaptable resources to assist with this),
  • Hosting a workplace or public Swap Party,
  • Holding a Friday File Fling in the office,
  • Download the guide for other ideas.
