We all make waste. Would you know what to do if your waste wasn’t collected?
2 billion people in the world don’t have any waste management service. Dumped waste spreads disease, causes catastrophic flooding, and eventually reaches the ocean where it destroys marine life.
That’s why WasteAid shares recycling skills with communities that have no waste management service. Small recycling businesses generate income and tackle the global waste crisis.
The world is filling up with waste. With your support we can turn the tide.
Waste management is vital for public health, safe environments and strong economies, 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 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.

We train people to manage waste safely and become self-employed recycling entrepreneurs. Find out how our work is helping deliver the Global Goals.
