One-off or periodic recycling events can be a good way to supplement the permanent, day-to-day recycling systems within your workplace, support a community initiative and have fun at the same time! Let us know you're holding a recycling drive for National Recycling Week by registering your workplace.

Mobile Phone Drive

Mobile phones contain both valuable and harmful materials. MobileMuster is the industry funded program established to increase recycling rates for mobile phones and accessories.

Get staff to open up their cupboards and drawers at home and dig out old/broken mobile phones and accessories for recycling. These can then be collected on a particular day or over the whole of National Recycling Week and returned to MobileMuster for recycling.

Items can be sent back to my MobileMuster in the following ways:

  • Join their program and ordering a collection box for your workplace.
  • Download a mailing label ad returning in a padded envelope via Australia post.
  • Search for your nearest drop-off location.

Find out how to keep your private information secure with MobileMuster's data management tips.

Clothing Drives

A clothing drive at work can be a good trigger for colleagues to round up their unwanted clothes and bring them in to donate to charity. Some of the larger charities have systems in place to provide collection bags and a pick-up service for workplace clothing drives.

Charities will use the donated clothing to provide needed items to clients, or sell them to raise funds for their charitable programs.

Search for charities in your area on RecyclingNearYou.

Some charities specialise in clothing donation programs.

  • Dress For Success and Fitted For Work are two clothing donation programs that specialise in women's business attire. Both programs help women experiencing disadvantage to find work and keep it, by providing free professional attire, career mentoring and development, and transition-to-work programs.
  • Shoes For Planet Earth is a non-profit organisation that works with local and international communities and companies to provide reused running shoes to those in need around the world. They have drop-off locations in NSW, VIC and QLD. As well as running shoes (no broken soles or holes please) they're also happy to accept insoles and spare laces.
  • Uplift Bras collects new and second hand bras and sends them wherever needed. For women in the developing world a bra is often unobtainable or unaffordable. In 2011, bras were sent to the Philippines, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Northern Territory. Uplift Bras have drop-off collection points in all Australian states and territories.
