National Recycling Week - A Future Beyond the Bin

Add to Calendar

Join APCO and the team from Planet Ark to celebrate National Recycling Week

Established by Planet Ark in 1996, National Recycling Week aims to bring a national focus to the environmental benefits of recycling and build greater recycling awareness among the general public, schools and workplaces. Now in its 25th year, the National Recycling Week campaign is returning with a new theme ‘A Future Beyond the Bin’ to shine a spotlight on three important areas of focus: food waste, e-waste and packaging.

In this week’s webinar we are delighted to welcome our partners Planet Ark to provide a preview of this year’s National Recycling Week campaign – including a strong focus on the initiatives and programs available for workplaces.

Research shows that over 40% of Australians believe workplaces lack recycling options. Having recycling programs in place is not only good for the environment but research shows that it is also good for staff morale, with three in four employees agreeing that having recycling at work makes them feel better about their employer. National Recycling Week is a great opportunity to get your workplace involved in new or existing recycling programs and other sustainability initiatives.

We’ll also provide an update on APCO’s National Consumer Education Campaign, which APCO will be continuing to roll-out during November.

Topics of discussion include:
- How to kick-start new recycling practices in your workplace and promote behaviour change.
- Ideas and advice on how to set up an effective recycling system that will have an impact beyond the workplace.
- How the National Consumer Education Campaign will help business and homes to recycle right.
- Free resources available for businesses to participate in National Recycling Week.

Zoom details will be circulated to your registered email address one hour prior to the webinar start time. If you are new to Zoom please check out our cheat sheet here:
