In the autumn of 2016, Keep Britain Tidy worked with Surrey
County Council to talk to local residents about their recycling services and
how they could recycle more effectively. A team of 15 trained Recycling
Advisors knocked on the doors of over 22,000 households across nine districts
and boroughs in Surrey.
The team achieved a very impressive contact rate of over 50%,
talking to over 11,000 residents about what they can and cannot recycle in
their bin, and taking over 370 orders for recycling bins and food waste
Whilst our team chatted to residents, they also informed
them about the Recycle for Surrey website so they could quickly and easily find out more about their
local waste and recycling services. It also provided a great opportunity for
residents to ask questions and provide feedback about their local service.
For residents that the team could not reach, a postcard
providing local recycling advice was delivered, ensuring the message was
provided to as many people as possible.
Catherine Porter, Waste
Improvement Officer for Surrey County Council said:
“It has been wonderful to
work with Keep Britain Tidy on this campaign. Despite being complex and logistically
challenging, the team approached the project with enthusiasm and
professionalism. The Recycling Advisors were both knowledgeable and skilled, and
they worked hard to deliver high quality conversations with residents, to
increase recycling and tackle contamination.”
