Our work

We have two priorities; minimising resource use and diverting priority materials from landfill.

Between 2011-15 we aim to:

  • Encourage better design and more informed consumption which will help us all waste less
  • Make it easier to recycle, repair and re-use as much of our waste as possible, wherever we are – in the home, at work, or away from home
  • To enable others to recover as much value as possible from the waste that's collected – whether as resources that can be used again and again, or as energy
  • Help others to keep resources moving round the economy - the more money we save, the less the demand on ever-scarcer natural resources
