The festive season is a time for family, friends, events and parties. Whether it's the work Christmas party, family lunch, drinks at midnight for New Years Eve or a backyard BBQ for Australia Day Aussies like to get together to celebrate. 

There are lots of little things that you can go do make these events a little bit greener. One of the easiest is to make sure you set up a system to recycle all the plastic soft drink bottles, glass champagne bottles and aluminium cans that get used.

Check out the pages below for more information on having the greenest event you can. And check out for local council kerbside information and for drop-off locations for items from batteries and computers to corks and excess bottles.


You can add a touch of green to your celebrations with a few simple steps.


Festivities need decorations, but choose wisely because all that glitters is not necessarily environmentally friendly.
