Modelling work undertaken by WRAP in 2017/18 helped officers from North East Lincolnshire Council develop a business case to replace the weekly collection of residual waste with an ‘alternate week collection’. In addition to delivering financial savings for the authority, the implementation of fortnightly residual waste collections saw an 18% reduction in residual waste alongside a 50% increase in dry recycling.
Officers from the council tasked WRAP with assessing alternatives to the under-performing multi-stream dry recycling service. The results of this further modelling work led directly to a major service change, which saw wheeled bins for a new two-stream dry recycling collection replacing the previous boxes and the introduction of a pilot food waste collection.
