WRAP trials to focus on SMEs

A second phase of trials designed to encourage small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to recycle has been launched across the UK by the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP).

Some 16 organisations are taking part in the six-month long demonstration trials building on work into best practices carried out in the first phase.

The aim is to develop convenient and cost effective recycling services on a wider scale to make it easier for more of the countrys SMEs to recycle.

Issues that will be looked at in particular include effective SME recruitment onto recycling services, collection techniques and frequencies plus charging mechanisms.

Demonstration trials include glass container collections for the hospitality industry and city centre cardboard and paper collections plus multi material collections. These will include: paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, metal and aluminium cans, plastic drinking cups, computer equipment, printer and toner cartridges.

WRAP SME recycling programme manager Liz Morrish said: This demonstration trial phase of the programme enables us to work with our partners on much larger scale so that we can develop robust good practice guidelines and models that will enable better targeting of SMEs.
