Planet Ark’s one-stop shop for accurate recycling information has helped millions of Australians recycle right at home, work, and school.

Recycling Near You is Australia’s first and most comprehensive database of recycling and reuse information for households, helping almost 1.8 million users find reuse and recycling information each year.

Originally started in 2006 with a grant from the Australian Government, the website contained waste and recycling information for all Australian councils by the end of that year. By 2010, the platform had also added non-council recycling options such as product stewardship schemes and other organisations.

In the last ten years the platform has grown fourfold, increasing from 400,000 users and 1.2 million pageviews in 2010-11 to 1.8 million users and 4.1 million pageviews in 2020-21.
