Planet Ark is staging a national recycling week from November 12-18 to encourage people to recycle more.
One of the most concerning matters is around the issue of electronic waste. The Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates e-waste is growing at more than three times the rate of general municipal waste. Recycling e-waste can be a challenge because it requires dismantling products to gain access to materials.
The Cartridges for Planet Ark campaign recycles all types of printers, copiers, toner bottles and fax cartridges.
For more information on recycling all types of ewaste, call the National Recycling hotline on 1300 733 712 or visit recyclingnearyou.com.au.
