Food waste: achieving sustained behaviour change by helping residents to reduce waste & recycle more

An estimated £9.7bn of food waste is generated each year, yet collection services are still inconsistent across local authorities in the UK. Explore how to achieve sustained behaviour change by putting residents at the heart of the mounting challenge.

During the webinar you will:

  • Hear from stakeholders that have adopted the latest thinking to optimise collections.
  • Understand cutting edge techniques to engage and motivate residents to reduce the amount they generate, and recycle the waste.
  • Hear a resident’s perspective on what motivates them to recycle food waste at home. Also, discover what helps them and and difficulties they have previously faced.
 
Listen to the full webinar below. Brought to you by LetsRecycle and Greenredeem.

Tackle food waste with Greenredeem

For many years, Greenredeem have been working closely with multiple council’s to help reduce food waste. It’s become an essential service for a lot of areas, and can be a useful tool to minimise the tonnage of residual wasteSadly, many local authorities still do not offer a food waste service. While it may be on the to-do-list for some, at Greenredeem we believe it’s an essential service to offer.

Introducing food waste to an area doesn’t have to be a daunting task either. We’ve looked at areas where hard to reach audiences are living, for example in high-rises. We’ve engaged with those who are seemingly unbothered by climate change. Segregating residents and communicating with them through direct channels is our secret to success.

Greenredeem has collated data and reviewed their efforts in many areas, especially in Wokingham Borough where over 22,000 members take part in the scheme. Discover how we helped Wokingham Borough achieve the second-highest increase in rates in the UK by downloading our case study.
