WasteAid shares recycling skills around the world
Did you know that up to 70% of the plastic in the oceans comes from places with no waste management?
1 in 3 people globally do not have a waste management service and have to burn or dump their waste, much of it ending up in the oceans.
WasteAid helps people turn their waste into useful products. We share recycling skills to create green jobs, improve public health, and protect the environment.
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.

The bigger picture
Solid waste is fast becoming one of the biggest issues of our time.
Be part of the WasteAid movement calling for better waste management for all. By acting now we can help protect future generations from serious pollution, the spread of diseases, and the harmful impacts of climate change.
Waste Aid in Australia works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island (ATSI) communities to create sustainable solutions to inadequate waste management in disadvantaged communities. Waste Aid Australia assists ATSI partners to leverage their own skills and expertise to manage environmental problems on their own land. Find out more at wasteaid.org.au
