 All around Australia, workplaces, councils and schools held Friday File Flings during National Recycling Week to recycle their unused paper files back into circulation whilst decluttering the office! Based on the results that were provided, it is estimated over 27 tonnes of old files were recycled or over 500 wheelie bins (240L). This equates to saving:

  • enough energy to power a CFL bulb for 6,916 hours, or over 288 days,
  • over 655,000 L of water,
  • 11 tonnes of carbon emissions, and
  • over 89,000 L of landfill space!

So a big congratulations to the 5,100 plus people who participated! Check out some of the photos.

And don't forget to make sure you finish the recycling job by switching to Australian made high-recycled content office paper.
