Proper waste management is a vital health service, and an engine for sustainable development
WasteAid spreads simple recycling skills around the world
WasteAid UK promotes community-driven waste management as an immediate way to make an impact on the global waste crisis.
- We partner with local groups so that people can tackle the waste crisis themselves.
- We share recycling skills to create jobs, keep neighbourhoods clean and protect public health.
- We raise awareness of the need for community waste management and campaign for urgent action.
Half the world’s waste isn’t properly managed, leading to disease, pollution and climate change.
Community waste management turns the problem of waste into an economic opportunity. WasteAid shares essential skills so that people can transform waste into useful stuff, creating healthier communities, cleaner oceans, and a better world for everyone.
Making Waste Work: A Toolkit
WasteAid has launched its toolkit for community waste management in lower- and middle-income countries. The toolkit provides essential information to help you set up community-led waste management systems and small recycling businesses. These activities can help keep your neighbourhood clean and healthy and even generate a small income.
Funded by the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management and produced by WasteAid UK, the toolkit builds on the practical experience and know-how of waste managers and recycling entrepreneurs from across the globe.
