Waste management doesn’t need to be complex or expensive – all it takes is the desire to change.
Making Waste Work is a 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.
Read Making Waste Work to discover the importance of delivering better waste management for all, and how to build local recycling enterprises that create jobs and improve the local economy.
See the How-to guides for illustrated step-by-step instructions to making useful products from waste materials.
