Reduce - Reuse - Recycle your waste

Consultancy

The Recycling Consortium Ltd (TRC) has merged with Network Recycling Ltd and SWAP to create Resource Futures Ltd, thus achieving common ownership and direction for three of the UK’s leading sustainable waste management businesses.

The three organisations have 50 years of experience between them and they have been working closely together over the last three years for clients such as WRAP and DEFRA.

Our particular strengths include:

Monitoring and Evaluation

Consultancy

TRC can monitor and evaluate the success of either your communications activity or recycling scheme, to WRAP standards or otherwise, and provide recommendations for taking the findings forward. Methods include:

Public and Community Engagement

Consultancy

Working with local volunteers as Recycling Champions, or with local community groups undertaking practical waste projects, can be a powerful tool to encourage behavioural change and raise levels of participation. However it has it’s own specialist skills and issues.

TRC offers training and advice to local authorities on setting up local waste action groups and working with volunteers to tackle waste issues and raise awareness at a local level. We also offer the Community Waste Action Toolkit, a comprehensive guide to setting up and running a range of practical community based activities.

In addition to training TRC can provide a full service of working with you to encourage and support the development of local waste action groups. This approach has proved highly successful in Oxfordshire where we have worked jointly the County Council to support more than a dozen such groups.

We also have practical experience of working with ‘hard to reach’ communities such as inner city neighbourhoods and multi occupancy buildings RIFE.

Education in Schools

With many years experience of developing and delivering curriculum based waste education in schools and developing imaginative resources for use by educators, TRC can offer a range of services including:
