How to re-use guides

Partnerships are the key to success in establishing more re-use and helping the sector to reap financial, social and environmental benefits. 

To help make this happen, we have produced a series of step-by-step guides aimed at encouraging more partnerships between local authorities, waste management companies and third sector organisations.

The guides cover how to:

  • develop a re-use strategy
  • establish a re-use baseline for your area
  • set up and run a re-use forum
  • produce a re-use action plan
  • effectively communicate and write a communications plan to boost re-use
  • provide a re-use focused bulky waste collection service
  • include re-use in local authority HWRC procurement (new July 2016)
  • provide for re-use at HWRCs
  • engage in re-use through the use of an Environmental Management System: a guide for social housing providers
