National Recycle Week

8 to 14 November, 2021


National Recycling Week provides an important opportunity for councils, workplaces, schools and individuals to improve their recycling knowledge, build better recycling habits and build trust in recycling.

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary’s, Education team is proud to be at the forefront of recycling education, with our innovative Wildlife over Waste program.  Reaching schools and community members all across Southeast Queensland and Northern New South Wales, our Education team has worked hard this year to teach and inspire individuals about how best to manage our waste and how the smallest changes can make the biggest differences, especially when done by many. Empowering students to become “Conservation Champions”, our team is looking forward to continuing this program in 2022.  

As part of our Wildlife on Wheels program, our team can come out to your school and help educate students about food chains, the effect of human activity on local habitats, living things and sustainability.  For more information on our Wildlife on Wheels program, and our Wildlife Over Waste program, please contact our Education team at

Here at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, we are actively taking steps to ensure that we recycle, reduce and reuse wherever possible.  Did you know we even “reuse” old koala gum leaves, and koala poo, and transform them into enrichment for Dingos and Tasmanian Devils?  There are many ways to recycle items – let us inspire you!
