Join us for WasteAid Week!
WasteAid UK is promoting a week of fundraising activities from 7 to 13 November.
We’re inviting you to organise a fundraising event for WasteAid UK so that together we can help tackle the global waste crisis. Half the world doesn’t have waste collection so we share recycling skills, creating jobs from waste and keeping families healthy.
“I just wanted to say what an amazing job you are doing with WasteAid. We were all very inspired and going to look at supporting the fundraising week at Essex.” Emily Martin, Waste Prevention & Education Manager, Essex County Council
Help us make a big noise and let the world know that waste matters! Find out more about WasteAid Week.
Waste management is vital for people’s health, environment and local economy, and yet half the world’s waste isn’t properly managed. WasteAid UK is a waste management charity working to make an impact on the global waste emergency in three ways:
- Partnering with local organisations in developing countries to improve the health, environment and livelihoods of people without waste services.
- Building the skills of local people to deliver practical solutions to the waste management crisis in their own communities.
- Raising awareness of the benefits of proper waste management and campaigning for greater change.
#WasteMatters: When waste isn’t collected or treated it causes serious health problems and pollutes the air, land and sea. We’re helping tackle these problems by turning waste management into a positive opportunity.
We train people to become self-employed recycling entrepreneurs. Find out how our work is helping deliver the Global Goals.
