The dates for this year's Schools Recycle Right Challenge are Monday 2 October to Friday 17 November 2017.
However, it's always a good time of year to promote recycling - so if that doesn't suit, please don't feel restricted to those dates!
We provide free recycling activity guides, lesson plans and Australian school event ideas, designed to engage students and teachers to learn by doing and having fun! Our Getting Started Guide will help you plan and promote your Schools Recycle Right Challenge activities.
Registered activity coordinators will have access to other resources throughout the year.
