Local Authority

14 June 2010Recharge Focus Report

Report Summary

This report further explores the issue of re-charge mechanisms through the lens of schools. Schools are used as a case study because they have scope to improve recycling rates and because they serve as an accessible example to better understand the broader issues around re-charge arrangements.

The issue around re-charge arrangements and other barriers were explored through interviews with waste officers from eight Local Authorities and Head Teachers from seven schools within those authorities.
Discussions revealed that re-charge mechanisms are neither a major barrier nor an incentive for the uptake of recycling in schools.
