Why WasteAid?

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 working to make an impact on the global waste emergency by:

  • Partnering with grassroots organisations to help develop cost-effective waste management services.
  • Building skills so that people can become successful recycling entrepreneurs.
  • Raising awareness of the importance of waste management and campaigning for greater change.
