WRAP works with local authorities across England, supporting them to deliver interventions that have been proven to increase the yield of food waste collected for recycling from separate weekly collections.

WRAP has been working with authorities on food waste collections since 2013, and we’ve found that the most successful way of increasing and sustaining the performance of food waste collection services is to introduce a package of interventions. These include use of a “no food waste” residual bin sticker, a free supply of caddy liners, and an information leaflet for residents. 

Initiatives:
  • Collections & recycling
  • Service design
  • Collections and sorting
  • Kerbside collection
  • Organics
