Guidelines for PPR in shopping precincts and public places

Following the success of the ‘Closing the Loop on the Mordialloc Shopping Strip’ project, the Australian Packaging Covenant further commissioned EnviroCom to produce comprehensive Guidelines for Public Place Recycling (PPR) in Shopping Precincts and Public Places.

The guidelines assist local government in introducing PPR systems, with detailed instructions under four easy steps:

Step 1. Review the current system

(e.g. Establish the project area; Review the waste collection contract)

Step 2. Design a new system

(e.g. Set up a project plan; Set targets and objectives; Bin design)

Step 3. Implement the new system

(e.g. Set up a communications plan; Promote the new infrastructure)

Step 4. Monitor and maintain the new system

(e.g. Review the new system; Maintenance and reporting)

Each step has its own ‘checklist’ to guide the user through a PPR implementation project, and there are helpful examples of project plans and maps, risk matrix, effective bin signage, communications plan, media releases, posters and evaluation surveys.

The Guidelines are available for download from the APC website: www.packagingcovenant.org.au/projects.php/17/closing-the-loop-on-mordialloc-shopping-strip
