National Recycling Week is approaching (7-13 Nov) and we’re inviting you to get involved by hosting a Friday File Fling.
It’s an easy event to organise and great way to engage your staff in recycling.
Why Take Part in the Friday File Fling?
Paper from Australian workplaces has a relatively low recycling rate as so much gets stored in draws, cupboards, cabinets and desks – never to be read again. Getting office paper, advertising material, used note pads and excess copies of reports and files can all be turned back into useful materials just by recycling. By hosting a Friday File Fling, you can declutter your workplace and get good, reusable paper back into circulation. So it’s good for you and the environment.
The Right Way to Fling
Our friends, The Records and Information Management Professionals Australasia (RIM) recommend that before ‘flinging’ any materials, you check with your records manager and the relevant state or territory records office to ensure that what you’re recycling is in accordance with your internal policies and mandatory retention and confidentiality legislation.
You can host your Friday File Flings on 13th November or any other day that suits. All you need to do is set some time aside and encourage your team, office, or organisation to clear out their files and get good quality paper back in to circulation. There’s no need to stop at paper, you can use this activity as an opportunity to look at what other reuse or recycling initiatives you could implement.
