Greenredeem to roll out 200 recycling kiosks

Recycling incentives business Greenredeem will introduce 200 waste kiosks across the UK after research showed that a lack of facilities is hindering recycling on-the-go.

A survey has found that while 93% of residents in the UK recycle at home, only a quarter do so in the street and other public places. The research was conducted by Opinion Matters on 3,367 residents.

Respondents indicated that they would increase recycling on-the-go if they had better access to facilities and if they were rewarded for doing so.

Greenredeem said it believed rolling out more recycling kiosks in partnership with local authorities could encourage more people to recycle. It aims to introduce the kiosks early this year.

Rob Crumbie, communications director at Greenredeem, said: “It is clear that there is a healthy appetite for recycling on-the-go. We believe that by making it easier, by incentivising and increasing the opportunities to recycle, consumers can recycle even more waste than they already do.

“The way people are consuming is changing and we need to address this in the waste and recycling industry. The aim of this roll-out is to ensure that residents have more opportunities to easily recycle on-the-go in a way that slots into their lifestyle, ultimately boosting recycling rates.”
