Study to encourage more recycling across Hampshire

As part of Hampshire’s drive to increase recycling and reduce the amount of waste thrown away each year, Hampshire County Council will be carrying out a study to find out more about what Hampshire residents are throwing away.

May 17 2019

Analysis of the material put into both general waste and recycling bins will help the County Council focus on what changes might help reduce waste and increase recycling.

Waste put out for collection at a random sample of properties across the county will be collected and sorted into material types to provide an overall picture of the different materials within Hampshire's waste stream.

No materials will be retained or stored after the analysis and no information that could identify an individual or residence will be collected or reported. This study will take place later this year.
