We promote low carbon waste management in Winchester District by encouraging waste reduction, reuse and recycling in order to reduce the district’s greenhouse gas emissions. Our focus is on:

  1. Promoting sustainable waste management within the Winchester District and increase awareness of the current facilities.
  2. Influencing national policy on the issue of food waste collections. 
  3. Raising awareness of the environmental damage of waste and promoting the waste hierarchy “Prevent, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover and Dispose as a last resort”.

If you are passionate about waste reduction and want to be part of a growing movement of local people, contact us on waste@winacc.org.uk

The Grocer's Waste Not Want Not campaign is gaining support.  It aims to double the amount of surplus food that's sent to charities. This overstocked or past best before/sell by date food would otherwise go to waste.

On the 2 April, WinACC's Waste Action Group laid out the arguments for why food waste is a major contributor to climate change and why food waste collections should be offered to all households in the UK.

Excessive consumption wastes resources and adds to climate change. Everybody is welcome to join this action group. Contact susie.phillips@winacc.org.uk


There are no forthcoming events in this category at present. Please see the all events page for more.
