Visiting a Recycling Centre? 

  • Stay two metres away from other visitors and staff at all times
  • Two people from the same household may leave their vehicle only to carry large items
  • Cars and vans under 2 metres high only – no vehicles with trailers

November 2016 to January 2017

Areas targeted

37 blocks of flats totalling 1,180 households in:

  • Ramsbottom
  • Tottington
  • Radcliffe


The campaign aim was to target contamination issues present in the communal recycling bins, to increase the quality and quantity of recycling by encouraging residents to dispose of their recycling correctly.

A bespoke Right Stuff Right Bin campaign was delivered to residents at several blocks of flats to raise awareness about contamination in shared bins.


  • Communal bins were checked for contamination and stickered with either a green, amber, or red sticker. Each household in the corresponding block were then given a corresponding green, amber, or red postcard
  • All properties, which received a red or amber postcard on the second round of bin inspections, were spoken to at the door. An information leaflet with recycling information was also handed to the resident
  • Recycling information stalls were set up to engage with residents at libraries and community events
