Things to consider when purchasing and designing a banner:

Go Green

  • Design: With longevity in mind – so they don't date rapidly. Order custom or University-branded banners for purchase via the Staff Hub.
  • Reuse: Some banners can be recoated / the bases can be reused for another vinyl banner. A variety of branded banners and other items are available via the Event Hire Store.
  • Re-home: Let the student union environment department know – may be able to use.

Use Discretion

  • Up-cycle: Some companies make Urban Totes etc out of the vinyl.
  • Recycle: If damaged, the aluminium bases can be placed in Hard Waste Collection (contact Campus Assist). For the vinyl banners please check the Find a PVC Recycler courtesy of Vinyl Council Australia.
  • Return: Have you asked the manufacturer if they take back?
Stop – throwing banners into landfill.
