Nine In Ten Homes Recycle

NINE out of 10 households are now regularly recycling and nearly half are also helping to reduce waste by composting at home, according to a new independent study.

The survey, commissioned by Public Services, was conducted by local research company Island Analysis. Using a combination of an online questionnaire and on-street interviews, it asked 500 local householders about their recycling habits, views on the facilities currently provided and any aspects that prevent them from doing more.

The sample also included homes that admitted they do not currently recycle and looked at what might encourage them to do so.

Island Analysis found that 92% of households in the survey said they currently recycled, with more than half of them (57%) visiting a bring bank site at least once a week.
