WasteAid UK is a waste management charity working to make an impact on the global waste emergency by:

  • Partnering with local organisations 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 importance of proper waste management and campaigning for greater change.
