National Recycling Week 2020: Eco Champs can!
This National Recycling Week, we're offering industry-leading recycling education resources to help you make the right choices at the bin. Being an Eco Champ means knowing exactly what an item is made of and how to dispose of it correctly to avoid contaminating the recycling bin with materials that don't belong. It also means making sustainable choices when out on a shop, and going the extra mile to find ways to recycle beyond the kerbside bin.
Our recycling toolkits for communities, local government, educators and businesses are packed with the latest education resources such as ebooks, social media graphics, activity sheets, case studies and more. Download your Eco Champs can! recycling toolkit below.
Eco Champs recycle for the future
We've come a long way since we started recycling 40 years ago. Recycling technology can now recover resources from food waste, green waste, and dry waste to name a few, and beneficially reuse them to create energy or in the manufacturing process.
When recycled material is reused in the manufacturing process, a circular economy is created. Apart from saving precious natural resources from being used, a circular economy stimulates the local economy, and creates jobs. It all begins with putting the right things in the right bin, so that every material has the best chance of being recycled every single time.
Watch our video to learn more, then use the tutorials for tips on how to dispose of your everyday items for better recycling outcomes.
