Help fight poverty, pollution and climate change
WasteAid shares waste management and recycling skills in the world’s poorest places.
1 in 3 people worldwide have to dump or burn their waste, causing the spread of disease, polluting the oceans and adding to the climate crisis.
Together with our partners, we make useful products from waste to build a cleaner and healthier future. You can help.
Our award-winning WasteAid toolkit, Making Waste Work, helps people start up community waste management and recycling businesses, keep neighbourhoods clean, and generate an income. Visit the toolkit for technical and safety tips and more ideas for turning waste into useful products. #makingwastework
WasteAid works with community-based organisations to help develop waste collection and recycling businesses.
