Mobile phone recycling has been put on the agenda for this year’s Clean Up Australia (CUA) Day.
Rob Nicholls, acting chief executive of the annual initiative, told the Daily Mercury that a mobile recycling programme will be on offer in 2009 as part of the campaign and individuals and businesses are being encouraged to take part.
“Every year thousands of Australians and businesses help clean up their environment on CUA Day and this year we’ll be celebrating our commitment to sustainability and helping out too,” he remarked.
CUA Day took place on March 1st, but the campaign continues year-round and the mobile recycling initiative will be in operation until the end of the month.
According to its official website, 630,000 volunteers took part on the day itself, collecting approximately 8,300 tonnes of rubbish.
On average, the volunteers worked for almost three hours each, with the overall total measured at 1,377,664 hours.
