Due to recycling rates below national expectations, the London Borough of Croydon's Energy and Sustainability Team recognized the need for increased resident recycling participation in the borough. Observation of kerbside recycling program participation, and interviews conducted with residents about both the kerbside program and the borough's numerous neighbourhood recycling sites enabled production of recommendations for recycling program improvement. Recommendations of methods for the Croydon Council to increase recycling participation accompany an updateable photographic database of the borough's neighbourhood recycling sites and recommendations for site improvement.
