Why WasteAid?

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.

You can help tackle the global waste crisis simply by spreading the word – sign up to our newsletter and find us on Facebook and Twitter.
