Wake up to waste - Northern Ireland

The first phase of the public awareness and information campaign, 'Wake up to Waste' has recently been evaluated by the Environment and Heritage service for Northern Ireland. The evaluation report identifies 40% of respondents to a survey, considered waste a more important issue than they did prior to the campaign. There has been a 30% increase in volumes of recyclates (materials that can be recycled) collected since the campaign was launched in some districts.
