Now in its 25th year, Planet Ark's National Recycling Week (Monday 9 to Sunday 15 November 2020) provides an important opportunity for councils, workplaces, schools and individuals to improve their recycling knowledge, build better recycling habits and build trust in recycling.

This established and highly regarded annual campaign continues to educate and stimulate behaviour change, by:

  • Promoting kerbside, industrial and community recycling initiatives
  • Giving people the tools to minimise waste and manage material resources responsibly at home, work and school.

This year's theme is 'Recovery - A future beyond the bin'. We invite you to value your resources, giving them a second life by reducing virgin resource use, reusing and recycling. Reducing our waste not only keeps valuable materials out of landfill it also benefits the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and our need for new materials. Reducing and reusing can also save you money at home and in the workplace.

NATIONAL RECYCLING WEEK SURVEY | TEST YOUR SKILLS 

Parkes Shire Council's waste group, Netwaste, have developed a game so you can test your skills on what stream different wastes go to.
