Hampshire seeks PR for recycling

Hampshire County Council is on the hunt for a PR consultant to develop its recycling comms strategy.

The move comes as the council examines how to boost the amount of waste recycled from 22.6 per cent to 40 per cent by 2005/6 in line with European Union legislation.

Activities will include a door-stepping consultation campaign to raise awareness of recycling waste and to identify where the greatest potential regions are to increase recycling.

A spokeswoman said: ‘We are looking for an organisation that can deliver activities such as door-stepping and events but we don’t yet know where these activities will take place or to what scale.’

The one-year contract could be extended to three years, said a spokeswoman.

The project is being managed by Project Integra, a body made up of all

the major local authorities in Hampshire, including Portsmouth.
