No need for recycling confusion

Date: 2014-10-06

An independent survey has found that a staggering 52% of respondents are still confused about what they can and cannot recycle both at home and at work.

The study, commissioned by Ceris Burns International and carried out by Mindlab International also found that there is still a marked indifference towards recycling in the workplace with a significant number of respondents admitting to only recycling if facilities are provided on site. 44% answered that they probably wouldn’t make the effort to take their recycling elsewhere if they didn’t have facilities at work.

The online survey questioned 200 people, from a range of professions, of varied age groups about their attitudes to recycling and current recycling habits.

Jonathan Richardson, Managing Director at Russell Richardson, said: “The results from this survey show that there’s still a long way to go when it comes to recycling, particularly in the workplace. At Russell Richardson, we offer a professional advisory service, guiding businesses of all sizes through the processes, providing the containers and arranging the schedules to suit each customer’s individual needs.”
