Combining, and replacing, the online recycling information system (ORIS) and kerbside dry recycling performance benchmarks tool, this WRAP Portal makes it easy to search for information on a specific local authority, or set criteria to find authorities that are running relevant schemes. The portal consists of three sections: • performance benchmarking for kerbside dry recycling and residual waste yields; • scheme details and search function; • recycling and waste statistics at a UK and country level. You can search for information on a specific local authority, or set criteria to find authorities that are running similar schemes. This is really helpful if you are thinking of starting a new scheme and want to talk to someone who has first-hand experience.
