Recycling Week NZ: 16-22 November 2015


Recycling Week NZ (RWNZ) was launched in November 2012 and our objective is to make 2015 bigger and better. Download our Recycling Week poster and get the whole school or office involved in our daily challenges.

Please use the Contact Form or message us on our Facebook page to let us know how you get on with the Recycling Week challenges this year.

For RWNZ2013 we produced a video and daily theme posters to help spread the message. We encouraged ways for people in offices, schools, or families to get involved in Recycling Week. The easy-to-remember themes for each day of the week helped generate some ideas.

The top level results for Recycling Week 2013 were as follows:

- We recorded 24 occurrences of media mentions for RWNZ2013
- There were over 900 views of our YouTube video
- We recorded over 1,300 new visitors to www.recycle.co.nz (compared to 747 last year)
- Around 34GBs of information was downloaded (compared to 923MBs last year)
- Our day 2 Tuesday posters had the highest number of downloads with 2,728 posters downloaded

We cannot say for sure how many extra land-fill destined recyclables have been diverted as a result of Recycling Week, but we can say the level of interest in our communications and information tools has been awesome. This must have made a difference!!!

Thanks again for everyone who got involved, keep up the good work and spread the word to your friends and family. Be great to see the number of people liking our Facebook page exceed 4,000 before 2015. Thanks heaps from the team at www.recycle.co.nz
