We have developed the Golden Rules of Kerbside Recycling individual graphics as well as an A3 poster that you can share with constituents. It's based on feedback from council waste educators around Australia. 

Research Guide

For NRW 2017, we have developed a research guide titled, What Goes Around: Why Buying it Back Matters which shows what happens to recycling beyond the bin, the importance of closing the recycling loop and helps householders and organisations to look for products made from recycled materials.

Help Celebrate National Recycling Week 2017

[Insert Parliamentarian name and title] and Planet Ark are encouraging Australians to keep recycling but ,to also fully close the recycling loop, it's important to buy products made with recycled content. National Recycling Week is a great time to do this

"We’re actually surrounded by products made from our recycling, and people may be surprised by some of the recycled products out there," says [Insert Parliamentarian name and title]. "To keep valuable resources like plastic, metal and paper in circulation and out of landfills, [Insert electorate] residents need to buy back the products that have been made from our recycling."

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.

National Recycling Week is kindly supported by Major Sponsor Naturale Tissue Products, Associate Sponsors, Bingo Bins and ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark' and Supporting Sponsors Australian Paper, MobileMuster, Tetra Pak and Tyre Stewardship Australia
