Since October 2018, Hubbub have been developing ‘Leeds By Example’, a campaign bringing together a ground-breaking coalition of local and national organisations to improve recycling of food and drink packaging currently disposed of ‘on the go’.
In the first six months, the campaign almost doubled recycling on the go in Leeds City Centre from 17-32% by introducing 124 eye-catching new recycling points.
The campaign extended until the end of September to build on what’s was learnt and the same approach is being taken to Swansea and Edinburgh in autumn 2019. The long-term ambition is to find a new method for effective recycling on the go, to help ten more UK towns and cities roll this out in 2020.
All organisations based in Leeds city centre are encouraged to take part. You will receive:
- Free communication materials to help increase recycling rates by using a consistent, simple recycling message across the city.
- Discounted recycling bins and collection service.
- Participation will be subsidised by the #LeedsByExample collaboration of funders.
