Disposal On the Go Local Authority Survey








There is an increasing shift from Government, media and the public around the leakage of used packaging into the natural environment. Reducing litter, disposal ‘On the Go’ i.e. in public spaces such as high streets and parks, and use of Deposit Return Schemes are all being debated.

Disposal of used packaging away from home is a key strategic issue to tackle littering and promote positive disposal behaviour, including recycling.

RECOUP carried out a survey of Local Authorities in the UK with the aim of gaining an insight into the service provision and collection ‘On the Go’, and nearly 100 Local Authorities across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland responded to the call for information.

A consistent picture soon became apparent that ‘On the Go’ disposal in the UK was failing.
