At WasteAid, we work with communities and policy makers in low and middle-income countries to implement waste management and recycling programmes. Our work improves the livelihoods of some of the poorest and most marginalised, supports grass roots entrepreneurs and promotes circular economy innovation contributing to a cleaner and healthier future for all. Waste management helps address some of the world’s most pressing issues and is critical to achieving sustainable development.

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.
