Sustainability Charity Partner: WasteAid - Biffa

Supporting communities in developing countries

Biffa are proud to partner with UK-based charity WasteAid, supporting offering our expertise to help communities in developing countries improve the management of waste.

WasteAid is an independent charity, set up by waste management professionals to share practical and low-cost waste management knowledge with communities in low-income countries. Communities with little or no waste management infrastructure have damaging effects on the local environment and the residents’ health, as a result of waste making its way into rivers and seas.

Biffa has chosen WasteAid as their charity partner for the next three years. In this time, Biffa will donate funds annually to support the charity’s internal infrastructure to enable them to support more projects worldwide. As a proud partner of WasteAid, we want to support the charity’s growth and ultimately help eliminate global waste issues while improving communities and lives.

How we help

Without positive intervention, environmental and public health issues will inevitably get worse. That’s why we’re joining forces with WasteAid, offering our time, expertise, position and funding to help communities to address local waste issues, no matter how small and tackle the everyday challenges created by a lack of waste management.

Our donation to WasteAid will enable the charity to grow and develop its infrastructure to support further projects. In addition to Biffa’s annual contribution, we hope to raise more funds through Biffa employee fundraising and as well as our suppliers and customers. Ultimately Biffa’s aim is to help WasteAid highlight global waste issues, support them in finding and implementing solutions whilst improving communities and lives.
