Resource Recovery from Waste is a research programme aiming to create value from waste. Resource Recovery from Waste has a vision of a high value circular economy that delivers clean growth, a better environment and social benefits such as skills and jobs. We work closely with our partners in government and business to turn this vision into action. Read more about the programme's strategy in this free publication.

This survey is designed to capture perspectives from companies and professional bodies, to demonstrate how radical change in waste and resource management in the UK can be delivered. It builds on an industry focused workshop and aims to clarify and consolidate the preliminary results to find out:

  1. What the future waste and resource management landscape should look like.
  2. Key drivers and barriers.
  3. Actions from industry, government, and academia to promote resource recovery.

The results will add to government advice on policy and regulatory change, recommend how industry can adopt more resource efficient, circular economy practices, and shape academic research to ensure practical relevance. We will share the outcomes via professional publications and a policy briefing.

Participation is anonymous. The survey consists of 8 questions and takes 12-15 minutes to complete. Any questions or comments regarding this survey can be directed to Anne Velenturf, programme lead for Resource Recovery from Waste, email
