About

 

The most detailed recycling search tool in the UK, with a searchable database of over 9000 items and 30,000 recycling locations.

 

Unlike other search tools Recycleopedia can show products split down into their component parts for different bins.

 

 

Aims

 

  • Make recycling as simple as possible
  • Increase collection quality and reduce contamination
  • Hit government recycling targets
  • Save time & money on enquiries
  • Educate your residents.

 

 

How it Works

 

The recycling search tool helps your residents to work out what goes in each collection in the simplest way possible.

 

Users simply type the item they want to recycle into the search box embedded on your website. It then searches through our unique database of over 9000 products - broken down into component parts...

...and tells them which kerbside collection bin to put each part of

their item into. Even if it can’t be recycled at home, we’ll point them to their nearest local recycling location, charity shop or collection point.

 

 

Savings Stack up

 

5000 Recycleopedia searches per month could save 2,000 hours or £19,000 per annum

Based on 2 minutes spent per enquiry (telephone/email) and

a £19k per year salary

 

Nice Save! Last year Hammersmith and Fulham saved £500,000 by recycling. It costs £128 for us to dispose of a tonne of waste, compared to just £73 a tonne for recycling.
