Options Appraisal

Getting collection systems right is a critical issue for local authority waste managers: how can recycling performance be maximised for the available money in a way that residents find acceptable?

Hermes, Eunomia’s proprietary modelling tool, builds on our extensive experience of service design and performance and helps us to quantify the costs and benefits of the available collection options to assist authorities in selecting services.

The list of clients for whom we’ve worked testifies to our expertise. We’ve modelled collection systems for authorities collectively responsible for around 30% of England and Wales’s total municipal waste and are frequently commissioned by WRAP to support them in assisting authorities interested in looking at the impacts of more complicated service changes.
