ACR+ member WRAP published a study “Increasing recycling in urban areas”. This study reviews the factors influencing recycling performance in urban areas and cities, both in the United Kingdom and internationally, as well as details the methodology and results of WRAP-funded pilots with local authorities designed to increase the capture of recyclables from flatted properties.
Increasing recycling in urban areas, particularly from flats, is difficult and challenging. Known barriers to participation in recycling in urban areas, identified through previous WRAP studies are wide-ranging. They include higher levels of deprivation within the resident population and greater transience of residents, limited access to recycling services and physical restrictions on space for storing recyclable materials, both inside the home and outside, prior to collection. This report provides information on the outcomes of a project which aimed to identify methods to improve recycling performance in urban areas.
