Best Practice Recycling

Setting Up a Recycling Scheme

Follow our best practice advice to help your club set up a successful recycling scheme   

  • Look at your waste contract and see what you are paying for
  • Carry out a waste analysis to see what waste your club/training centre produces
  • Identify which waste streams you’d like to recycle
  • Look at various contractors in your area, organise site meetings, discuss which waste can be recycled, costs, lift. And haggle!
  • Identify the location of recycling and landfill bins
  • Design good signage
  • Train staff/volunteers and notify users of the new scheme. Explain the reasons, identify how much you hope to save and what the saved money will be spent on
  • Monitor. Take a peek inside your bins and ask the contractor for feedback on contamination
  • Contact The Green Blue if you require help in setting up a scheme or negotiating your contract. Sometimes you may not need to reach the end of a contract in order to secure a better one
