Improving recycling through effective communications

A practical guide to improving recycling performance through effective communications with your residents. 

The guide is built on WRAP's experience of running national recycling and waste prevention consumer-facing programmes and on good practice from local authorities throughout the UK.
 
It provides a broad introduction to the issues of developing a recycling communications strategy and a methodical approach to behaviour change programme planning whether you are:
  • Getting started with recycling communications
  • Keeping communications fresh
  • Expanding an existing behaviour change programme to cover new collections or tackle specific issues
Includes new sections on social media, communicating with culturally diverse groups and communications on a low budget.  
 
This guide has been fully updated to be an easy-to-use and highly interactive document. You can have a chapter by chapter breakdown by using the navigation provided to the right of this page or you can download the full guide to improving recycling through effective communications.
