In summer 2010 Southampton City Council and partners won funding to conduct a ‘ Green Credentials and Behaviours’ insight project. The project used customer insight to tackle waste management and recycling issues , as well as collaboration between practitioners in these two areas. The results: Household waste : Between April 2010 and April 2012, household waste sent for disposal has reduced by 18%, or 17,000 tonnes. Waste disposal: By reducing household waste by 9,426 tonnes between 2010 and 2011, and by a further 7,154 the following year, the partners have saved a total of £546,708 and £486,472 respectively each year in waste disposal costs. CO 2 Emissions reduced by 2,272 tonnes, vastly exceeding the projects original target of 150 tonnes. Contamination of recycling reduced by 3 – 5%
