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

The theme for National Recycling Week (12 -18 November 2018) is ‘From Waste War to Recycling Reboot’. It will explore the impact of China’s waste policies on Australia, the journey of your recycling. It will aim to restore confidence in recycling by celebrating Australia’s positive recycling stories as well as our achievements around product stewardship. 

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)
  • Get involved in Buy It Back Day
  • Hosting a workplace or public Swap Party
  • Holding a Friday File Fling in the office
  • Download the guide for other ideas
