National Recycling Week

Planet Ark founded National Recycling Week to bring a national focus to the environmental benefits of recycling.

Now in its 24th year, this well-established annual event continues to educate and stimulate behaviour change by promoting kerbside, industrial and community recycling initiatives; and giving people the tools to minimise waste and manage material resources responsibly at home, at work and at school.

Keep Australia Beautiful Week

Keep Australia Beautiful Week encourages Aussies to take the pledge, to pick up 1 piece of rubbish per day for the week. Let’s work together to tackle litter. Roadside litter is the leading type of litter found in Australia and hugely detrimental to our environment.

Cutting litter requires everybody to be involved; your local authority, waste contractors, shops, pubs, businesses, community members and travellers, all have a role to play.

That’s why Keep Australia Beautiful is working with various community and travel groups around Australia engaging individuals with their community as well as communities they are travelling through. We all need to work together to tackle litter.

Find out what you can do on the Keep Australia Beautiful website.

Clean Up Australia Day

Clean Up Australia inspires and empowers communities to clean up, fix up and conserve our environment.

Register a site and coordinate your own local clean up, or join in another site near you.

Every year hundreds of thousands of people take part in the nation’s biggest litter reduction event.  Less litter means healthier landscapes, waterways and oceans!
