Recycling artwork

A range of recycling artwork has been designed for use on recycling and waste bins and other facilities and encourage people to ‘Do the right thing, use the right bin’.

Ensuring the correct materials are recycled minimises contamination of the recycling stream and improves recycling rates.

The Do the Right Thing Use the Right Bin tagline was developed jointly by the Packaging Stewardship Forum (PSF) and the Queensland Government and supported by the Australian Packaging Covenant.
