National Recycling Week

Overview

National Recycling Week (NRW) is an annual education and media campaign hosted by Planet Ark.

Held in the second week of November, NRW aims to promote and improve the environmental benefits of kerbside, industrial and community recycling programs by educating businesses and communities to:

  • consider more effective re-use and recycling initiatives for waste minimisation
  • have an improved understanding of the types of materials that can be recycled
  • consider different ways of managing their material resources
  • change their behaviours with respect to waste and its disposal.
