Enventure to start new engagement campaign in Greater Manchester

Residents throughout Greater Manchester will soon be receiving support and advice on their doorstep on recycling issues from one of the recycling engagement officers at Enventure.  As specialists in the area of recycling engagement, Enventure has recently secured a new 11 month contract with Viridor Laing (Greater Manchester) and GMWDA (Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority) to undertake direct engagement campaign with households in Bolton, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport and Tameside under the Recycle for Greater Manchester campaign.

 

 

The work, which will start in May 2016, aims to inspire residents to make recycling second nature with the overall aim of increasing recycling rates and reducing the amount of waste being sent to landfill.

 

 

Commenting on the recent win, Mark Robinson, Enventure’s Managing Director, said

 

 

“We are very pleased to be working with Viridor Laing in Greater Manchester again. Speaking to residents is key in getting important recycling messages across and we believe this new engagement campaign with have a real positive impact on recycling rates for the future.  We are looking forward to getting started.”

Research exploring Sheffield residents’ environmental attitudes for Sheffield University

Enventure Research is pleased to be working with Sheffield University for the first time in the delivery of a survey exploring the things that people buy and use, their views on the environment and on fairness between different generations.

 

The survey is part of a wider research programme involving similar work in Uganda and China.

 

The survey will take the form of an on-street, face-to-face survey with Sheffield residents.  Enventure Research’s experienced interviewing team will engage with a broadly representative sample of residents, meeting quotas set to ensure that individuals from a range of genders, ages, ethnicities, working statuses, geographic locations and family compositions are spoken to.

 

Questionnaire topics will include pollution, extreme weather, waste, loss of green space and responsibility for future generations.  Demographic information will also be collected from respondents.
