Wasteaid – a new organization

I stumbled across a new organization called Wasteaid.  It looks like something keeping an eye on.  I have copied some information below on what they do. Their website is at wasteaid.ca

What we are

WasteAid aims to become a major international charity providing impoverished communities with expertise,support,projects,resources and training in the management of solid wastes and their associated impacts.

What we are trying to do

  • Training and Capacity Building – in all aspects of wastes management
  • Economic – waste as a business for local communities
  • Social – eco-justice, advocacy, education and awareness, health, safety and support
  • Environmental – remediation and protection
  • Industry Engagement – connecting the global waste industry to the development community

Who we are

We are an increasing number of waste, environmental, aid and development professionals and concerned individuals, organisations and businesses that want to put waste around the world right and specifically want to help the particularly poor and vulnerable communities, where ever they are, from Africa, the arctic north of Canada, to the poor and impoverished parts of our increasingly large cities, take some of the strain in dealing with the impacts associated with the poor management of solid wastes
