A few reminders in regards to Planet Ark's National Recycling Week:
- You can recycle printer cartridges and mobile phones into everything from pens to jewellery at Australia Post outlets. (There are recycling boxes located in Australian Post retail outlets).
- Especially companies and offices are encouraged to participate in Friday File Fling (file cleanout: declutter your office and get good, reusable office paper back into circulation.).
- You can check out the website or the newsletter of your council to see what they are doing or you can take a part in during this meaningful week. You can also visit some reputable and informative sites such as livinggreener.gov.au, recyclingweek.planetark.org or recyclingnearyou.com for more detailed information on the National Recycling Week and recycling in general.

Wherever you are or whatever you do, don't forget to reduce, re-use and recycle!
