Resources to support better recycling in your apartment building
We know it can be challenging to get recycling right if you live in an apartment building with shared bins. If you're passionate about recycling and want to help yourself and/or your neighbours get it right, here are a few best-practice resources we recommend.
- Sustainability Victoria Know Your Recycling website – lots of online resources and information to help you know what can be recycled and understand what can and can’t go in your recycling bin. Note, if you have a City of Yarra logo on your recycling bin, its best you refer to information on how to use your yellow-lidded recycling bin to understand what can and can’t go in this bin.
- The War on Waste action toolkit – a free toolkit developed by the ABC about the ‘hows’ of doing good for your ‘hood. A handy tool to power community groups and waste warriors to reduce waste across Australia.
- A palette of possibilities for environmental action projects – this book is a fabulous and comprehensive guide to designing change projects. It has the useful behaviour change strategies and design processes.
- Goodies for practitioners – Changeology have a great website with best-practice information and practical tools for communicating and facilitating change.
