New guidance for recycling on the go schemes in England has been launched by WRAP.
The guidance for organisations such as councils, temporary events organisers and shopping centres, includes a range of information including legal requirements, how to label bins, how to promote recycling, and monitoring and evaluating schemes.
Marcus Gover, director at WRAP, said: “There are well-established schemes in place to help us recycle while we’re at home – but it can be more difficult when we’re out shopping or at a sporting event, for example. Recycling on the go facilities offer people an easy way to recycling when they’re out and about as well. These facilities can capture valuable recyclable materials which may otherwise go to landfill, meaning their value to the green economy is lost.
“This guide will give decision-makers in organisations the information they need to know about how to set up or expand a recycling on the go scheme, and the business benefits that can be gained from this, such as avoiding waste disposal costs.”
