Highland Community Waste Partnership

We are one of the founding partners of the Highland Community Waste Partnership.

Over the next 3 years, we will be working together to reduce waste and build a movement for mor sustainable consumption in the Highlands, by working across the following three key areas of waste:

  • Food waste and compostingImage of the Highlands and partners
  • Share & repair instead of buying new
  • Packaging and single-use items

Specifically, here at Lochaber Environmental Group we will be leading on the following areas of work:

  • Home composting and reducing food waste into landfill
  • With support from Zero Waste Scotland, provide information and events to reduce food waste
  • Signposting for community composting resources
  • Working with local businesses to reduce food waste and signposting to support
  • Increase the use of pre-loved, repaired and shared goods
  • Provide signposting to advice and support on a range of waste reduction issues

In addition, we will be collaborating on a number of initiatives to help raise awareness, provide skills and know-how and change the way that we all consume, that is, buy, use and dispose of things.
