National Recycling Week 2016

This week is Australia's 2016 National Recycling Week, 7th to 13th November. Everyone is encouraged to get involved in recycling week to reduce their carbon footprint on our precious planet. The driving force behind this year's National Recycling Week is Planet Ark Organistion. The theme is 'So You Think You Can Recycle?' - aim will help people find out if they are a good recycler. You can visit Planet Ark's website to find a local recycle event or even list a public recycle event yourself.

According to Ryan Collins from Planet Ark, "a new report titled So You Think You Can Recycle? released for National Recycling Week shows that Australians are keen recyclers but most of us are still making mistakes. Most people are engaged in recycling at home and think they understand recycling well, but this creates the belief that it’s always “someone else” who isn’t a good recycler.

The research also found some surprises like the fact that the most committed recyclers are more likely to make two key mistakes and that there are even differences based on age and gender".

There are recycle garbage bins for garden waste and cardboard boxs. Furthermore you can install a water tank.
