Extending Responsibility: RecyclingNearYou Report Released
Author: Ryan Collins
Planet Ark's RecyclingNearYou website shows that electronic waste remains the hot button issue for Australians seeking recycling services.
Of the two million recycling enquiries made on the site over the past year the ‘Computers, TVs and Electronics' category was the most popular - for the fifth year in a row. Other e-waste categories in the top 10 included printer cartridges (number 3), batteries (number 4) and car batteries (number 6).
These results are outlined in the annual RecyclingNearYou report, which this year is titled Extending Responsibility. It highlights the individuals or groups taking responsibility for recycling particular materials in Australia and is a powerful indicator of the types of options being sought by Australians.
