Recycling Roadshow Report

Recycling Roadshow at Banbury Station. Simply Waste Solutions merchandise of pencils and wheelie bins placed on table.

There is a lot of uncertainty when it comes to knowing what is recyclable and what isn’t. So, when we recently hosted an Educational Roadshow for one of our customer’s we made sure to interact with and quiz its staff as well as members of the public.

By asking one question “Are you 100% confident that you know how to recycle correctly?” followed by a quick test using examples of waste materials we had provided, we were able to see just how much people thought they knew about waste and recycling.

After analysing our findings, we discovered that 60% of the people we asked stated that they were confident that they knew how to recycle correctly, however, when tested only 44% of these people disposed of the waste examples correctly.

We are proud to say that after this event, many people walked away with some new recycling knowledge and less confusion about some of the waste examples we had brought along – such as paper coffee cups!
