Waste pilot scheme at University of Southampton to reduce urban plastic pollution

The Environment Agency has lead on a project to trial new and innovative recycling interventions at the University of Southampton’s Highfield Campus.

The aim is to reduce plastic pollution from urban catchments through positive behaviour change. The overall objective is to understand the best way to improve recycling behaviours through correct waste sorting, reduce contamination and maximise recycling rates.

It has worked with the Universities of Southampton and Plymouth and the waste management company Suez to achieve this.
