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.

Help Celebrate National Recycling Week 2018 - From Waste Wars to Recycling Reboot

[Insert Parliamentarian name and title] and Planet Ark are encouraging Australians to help us reboot recycling by taking control of their own recycling journey and discovering the many elements of recycling that lie outside the public eye. Nearly all Australians recycle and think of themselves as conscientious recyclers, but many residents want to know what happens once the wheelie bin is emptied from kerbside.

"It's important for [Insert electorate] residents to continue having confidence in recycling and being active recyclers ," says [Insert Parliamentarian name and title]. " By understanding recycling, whether it be kerbside recycling, or through product stewardship schemes, reuse options or buying recycled we can all do our bit to support our Australian recycling industry ."

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 2018 is kindly supported by Major Sponsor Bingo Industries, Associate Sponsors MobileMuster, Nespresso, Australasian Recycling Label and Cartridges 4 Planet Ark, and Supporting Sponsors Unilever and Tetra Pak.
