This Toolkit is for housing providers, building managers and service providers that want to make improvements to the recycling and rubbish services at their flats, by implementing the Flats Recycling Package. The Toolkit has been updated following the publication of the report Making recycling work for people in flats 2.0 which explored new ways of increasing recycling from purpose-built flats. This new version includes guidance on introducing food waste recycling services to flats, as well as making improvements to dry recycling and rubbish services.
A full set of down-loadable assets is available including bin stickers, signage, posters and information leaflets, along with guidance for their correct use. Some of the artwork is available in InDesign format, enabling professional designers to localise the assets with boroughs logos.
Please ensure you have read the Toolkit before downloading any of the assets.
Bespoke support is available for organisations looking to implement the Flats Recycling Package. For more information, please email email@example.com

About the Making recycling work for people in flats project
This two-year research project was delivered by ReLondon in partnership with housing association Peabody and six inner London boroughs.
The aim was to better understand the barriers to recycling for people who live in purpose-built flats and identify practical measures that could be taken by housing providers, building managers and service providers to remove those barriers. The desired outcome was to improve the quantity and quality of recycling collected from purpose-built flats across the capital.
