The corks are popping and the finger food has arrived - let the end of year partying begin!

Celebrating Christmas with colleagues doesn't mean your good waste reduction and recycling habits should go out the door. With a little planning, keeping waste to a minimum and recycling at your workplace Christmas party can be a breeze. If you're not the party organiser, just email them this page of easy tips.

Take action, commit to Do #2.

  • Avoid disposable cups, plates and cutlery wherever possible - they're expensive and represent an enormous waste of resources. Reusable crockery can be both stylish and sustainable at the same time. 
  • Set up a recycling station, and make sure the signage is crystal clear. Our recycling signs make it easy for everyone to recycle right, no matter how much fun they may be having. 
  • Get extra bins or arrange an extra collection with your recycling provider if it's going to be a big one. If you don't have a recycler hop onto to arrange one. 
  • Donate good quality leftover food to charities like Oz Harvest or Food Bank. Avoiding food waste at work is always best but if it's unavoidable, check the Food Donation pages on BusinessRecycling
  • Need bins for your workplace party? can connect you with recycling bin providers too.
