Recycle Right/Southern Metropolitan Regional Council, together with our partners City of Melville, City of Kwinana, City of Fremantle and Town of East Fremantle are proud Plastic Free Council Challenge members.
Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities. Will you be part of Plastic Free July by choosing to refuse single-use plastics?
By participating, Recycle Right is supporting the community to choose to refuse single-use plastics directly and helping to create cleaner communities, alleviating the recycling crisis, reducing landfill waste and mitigating the effects of climate change.
The Plastic Free July challenge provides resources and ideas to help you (and millions of others around the world) reduce single-use plastic waste everyday at home, work, school, and even at your local café. Ready to take the Plastic Free July challenge? Participants tell us that the tips and tricks
in our weekly emails during July help them to keep motivated during the challenge. People also enjoy reading stories from our participants and other news from our global movement.
