In the Community

Get involved

If you want to spread the word about waste and recycling to your community, we have produced our own community workshops toolkit which gives advice about delivering community workshops.

This guidance document is intended as a resource for local authority officers, outreach workers and others who want to plan and run effective community workshops on waste and recycling.

The purpose of such workshops would be to improve recycling participation amongst target BAME communities, particularly diverse urban communities, by taking into account different audience-specific communication considerations and using engagement techniques to improve people’s understanding of their local recycling service and shift their behaviour towards a more effective use of services.
