Delivering waste prevention

This section of the Household Waste Prevention Hub will guide you through the four main stages of delivering waste prevention in your local authority. 

Stage 1: Making the case for waste prevention

This stage of the process provides information on making the case for waste prevention, including estimating potential diversion, cost and carbon savings. 

Stage 2: Planning waste prevention

This stage focusses on the strategic drivers of waste prevention at the European, national and local levels. The section also includes guidance on writing a waste prevention plan as well as links to good practice plans.

Stage 3: Implementing and communicating waste prevention

This stage provides guidance on getting to know your audience, understanding their issues and providing effective communications campaigns. The section also includes a guide on building partnerships with key stakeholders to deliver waste prevention.

Stage 4: Monitoring and evaluation

The final stage in delivering waste prevention includes guidance on monitoring and evaluating waste prevention in your local authority. The section builds upon the official WRAP Monitoring & Evaluation Guidance and provides links to tools and resources to help effectively monitor projects and programmes.
