Resource or Project Abstract

The development of a Good Practice Guide for Waste Resource Exchange Systems was listed in the EPA Research ? Sustainability Research Call 2014 as a research priority area. As waste/resource exchange systems are a new growth area it was considered a suitable time to review these systems and create a framework in the form of a good practice guide and the production of user factsheets in order to create minimum standards for the industry.

The main deliverables from this study were the production of a waste/resource exchange good practice guide and four factsheets. The aim of the good practice guide is to demonstrate how new and existing waste/resource exchange organisations can be set up and operated to the highest standards. The guide offers potential developers of waste/resource exchange systems practical advice on the main considerations and how to address them. It provides advice on getting started, understanding the barriers and challenges involved and identifying the critical elements to creating a successful resource exchange organisation. The guide is also aimed at organisations managing existing resource exchange systems on how to potentially improve their systems.

Two of the factsheets are targeted at those engaging with waste/resource exchanges, such as householders, business and industry, to ensure that their dealings are informed and conducted in line with industry good practice and the remaining two factsheets provide summarised guidance to both online and non-online waste/resource exchanges.
