Proper waste management is a vital health service, and an engine for sustainable development
WasteAid – community waste management and recycling business development
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.
- We train people in low- and middle-income countries to manage waste in a safe and affordable way.
- Our partners benefit from local waste management jobs, useful products, a cleaner environment and better public health.
- We campaign for urgent action to tackle the waste crisis and promote recycling as a tool for global sustainable development.
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.
