Clean Up Australia - The Facts - taken from

  • Australians are among the highest producers of waste, per person, in the world.
  • An estimated 7 billion cigarette butts end up in Australian waterways, streets and parklands each year.
  • 80 million plastic bags are dumped in Australia each year - creating a serious threat to our precious marine life.
  • 33% of all items collected on Clean Up Australia Day 2007 were plastic - recycling one tonne of plastic saves enough energy to run a refrigerator for a month.
  • Recyclable material makes up almost 80% of total household waste in Australia.
