The Recycling in London’s HMOs report published by Resource London provides the details of ethnographic research carried out into recycling from London HMOs.
Ethnographic research is a form of qualitative research aiming to understand people’s behaviour by building a strong understanding of people’s home environments, relationships and life priorities. This makes it more possible to uncover insight into why they behave as they do.
This report covers what it is like to live in an HMO, the barriers to recycling and the further opportunities that can be developed to encourage residents in HMOs to recycle more.
Further research is planned based on the findings of this report.
