Proper waste management is a vital health service, and an engine for sustainable development
Community waste management and sustainable development
WasteAid spreads simple recycling skills around the world.
Half the world’s waste isn’t properly managed, leading to disease, pollution and climate change.
Simple recycling tools and skills turn the problem of waste… into an opportunity.
WasteAid partners with local organisations to share waste management and recycling skills, to keep communities healthy, keep plastic out of the ocean, and make lasting change.
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.
With your help, more communities can learn how to turn waste into useful products, benefitting their local economy, environment, and health. Our amazing fundraisers have climbed mountains, completed epic litter picks, run marathons and even jumped out of a plane!

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