Every local business has a role to play when it comes to being kind to the environment, which is why ActewAGL is getting behind national recycling week.

"We offer a range of sustainable programs to the community including Fridge Buyback, Big Business Light Switch and Heating and Cooling Upgrades”, says ActewAGL Sales and Marketing Manager Tony Muckle.

“In addition to supporting the community by replacing their energy-draining white goods, we go one step further by ensuring that the fridges, light globes and heating and cooling systems we replace are recycled through local businesses.

“It’s a win-win for our customers - they can upgrade inefficient goods and receive a small contribution for their efforts, safe in the knowledge that their obsolete items are not ending up in landfill,” said Tony.
