Pledge to make a difference by recycling more


You can make a difference

We inhabit one of the world’s most diverse regions, with an abundance of natural beauty worth preserving.


Recycling is one way you can act to make a difference.


Are you ready for some recycling myths to get busted out of landfill.

Did you know that more than 50%* of what our region is throwing in their red bins is recyclable


*NE Waste Composition Audit.

By recycling just 6 aluminium cans you can save enough energy to offset the carbon emissions from a 10km journey in an average sized car, 17km bus ride or 25km train trip.

The items that go into our yellow-lidded recycling bin at home include glass bottles and jars, plastic containers and drink bottles, milk and juice cartons, paper and magazines, steel and aluminium cans, and even aerosol cans.

Take our pledge to Learn, Act and Share.
