Recycling Research

The Southampton Citizenship Research Project has been recently been conducting an investigation into recycling – citizens are working alongside the Southampton City Council and the University of Southampton to look into rates of recycling, and what can be done to increase the amount of recycling carried out across the city. Part of this project involved the collection and collation of a vast amount of data related to several aspects of recycling.

A few different methods were employed to collect the data – through analysing tweets (publicly available on the social media platform Twitter), and asking people within the city. This data was then utilised to produce some useful graphs, and draw conclusions related to recycling over the city, which can be found below:
