Re: Kerbside bin contamination programs and campaigns done using CBSM

Hi Fiona - You may already have found what you were looking for, but I can recommend at least one CBSM-based campaign to reduce contamination from a Seattle, Washington based consulting firm, C+C. Here is a brief overview: http://cplusc.com/portfolio-items/waste-management/
You could reach out to C+C to get more details, I've seen them give full presentations on this and other similar recycling contamination reduction campaigns, and they might be open to sharing those presentations with you.
There are also some case studies on the Tools of Change website, including this one from Bankstown, Australia: http://www.toolsofchange.com/en/case-studies/detail/687
My office did a city-wide CBSM-based campaign when we changed our residential compost guidelines to include food along with yard waste a few years ago. We worked to get people to put food waste in their compost bin rather than their trash. If that's of interest, I'd be happy to share it with you.
I had a lovely visit to Ballarat last year, and would be happy to connect and offer any suggestions and lessons learned from our experience here in Portland.
