Circular Economy Network

A waste-free world requires actions throughout society to design out waste, keep resources in the loop, and return biodegradable material to nature.

WasteAid’s Circular Economy Networks bring together the public, private and community sectors to develop locally-owned circular economy strategies. We strengthen material value chains, attract finance and nurture grassroots innovation.
