A huge thank you to the 152 councils that provided input to Planet Ark’s research for this year’s National Recycling Week (7th-13th November).

So You Think You Can Recycle? Research Report

Recycling is a constantly evolving industry, with new initiatives and technologies in continual development. Planet Ark's report titled So You Think You Can Recycle? asks Australians to find out how good a recycler they really are.


Council Survey Results

Contamination was again highlighted as the key issue councils face in recycling programs.

To help reduce confusion - your council can leverage National Recycling Week as the perfect time to inform residents of the key aspects of recycling.

Plastic Bag Poster

Councils in Australia say the most common mistake made by residents are putting plastic bags and soft plastics in the recycling bin. So we've developed a poster for residents to, politely, encourage their neighbours to keep plastic bags out and their recycling loose. We can even add your logo. Download and spread it around.
