Research into the issues associated with people sleeping in waste containers

Gladding, Toni; Rolph, Catherine and Wright, Paul (2020). Research into the issues associated with people sleeping in waste containers. Biffa.

Abstract

In 2014, the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management, waste management and recycling company Biffa and StreetLink, the national rough sleeping service, came together to carry out a study into people sleeping in bins following several near misses and, tragically, one fatality.
Five years on, this research has been repeated to determine the scale of the issue now, to assess how far the issue has progressed since the first report and to identify whether best practice is being adopted by waste producers and waste management companies. The intention was to also seek to set out a range of recommendations for the industry as a whole - and to determine how everyone involved can work better together to address the issue of people in bins.
