This event has already taken place
22 September, 2020

Event details

The UK recycling system is due to undergo a major shakeup over the next few years. That means it is more important than ever to understand how people feel about it and what needs to be done to ensure they play their part and reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible.

During this webinar, we explored public attitudes to recycling with expert speakers in local government, behaviour change and, of course, recycling.

This event was supported by recycling company Viridor, who will be launching their fifth annual recycling index tracking attitudes to recycling from across the UK, produced by YouGov.
