Media release: Recycle right during National Recycling Week

17 Nov 2023
Resilient Environment

Running since 1996, and established by Planet Ark, National Recycling Week is about empowering the community to recycle with confidence.

To celebrate National Recycling Week, Manningham Council has a variety of community sessions and events on offer including:

  • Pop-up stand at the Pines Shopping Centre all week where friendly staff can answer any questions and dispel any recycling myths.
  • Waste question and answer online session on Wednesday 15 November (registrations essential).

Manningham Council Director City Services, Rachelle Quattrocchi said we know our residents are committed to recycling. However, we are still seeing approximately 7.5 per cent recyclables that end up in the average red lid garbage bin.

“This means valuable resources are ending up in landfill. During National Recycling Week there are lots of resources available to refresh your recycling skills,” she added.

Recycling reduces our environmental impact and supports the goals in our Manningham Climate Emergency Response Plan.
