1 Recycling Collections from Flats – working examples Beverley Simonson ROTATE Adviser, WRAP

2 Today's presentation Common ground to consider Communal food waste collections Chute recycling scheme Collection points on each floor Flats above shops Site improvements

3 Common ground to consider Flats are different from kerbside properties! Be prepared to consider site specific solutions for recycling Flats inventory - invaluable Be realistic with expectations for capture Cost per hh and per tonne may not compare to kerbside Take risk into account and be prepared for differing stakeholder opinion Be prepared for the time associated with stakeholder engagement Range of communication methods required - not just leaflets

4 Communal food waste collections

5 Stakeholder buy in important from the outset –Managing agents; TRAs; Trading Standards Bins should be located as close to existing recycling facilities as possible External bin must be secure - ABPR Provide caddy and liners Performance data still limited –Hackney 0.3kg/hh/wk (bin weighing) –Tower Hamlets 0.57 kg/hh/wk (fill rates, sense checked)
