What is upcycle your Waste? 

Upcycle Your Waste is a FREE ‘pilot’ project in Kent dedicated to accelerating the adoption by SMEs of circular business cases that transform company waste flows into valuable resources. Upcycling in the context of this project means transforming waste(d) materials or parts into secondary resources as products, parts or materials of at least equal and preferably better technical, economical and societal quality, without burdening people and the environment with hazardous and harmful substances. This will, in turn add value and reduce the use of virgin materials in the process.

Who should attend?

Are you a business/organisation that currently segregates your waste streams e.g paper, plastics, glass, metals, electronics, wood, organic/food, rubber, textiles, aggregates for traditional waste management and/or recycling purposes only?

*Would you like to know more about the opportunity to collaborate with other businesses and organisations to commercialise your waste into secondary resources as products, parts or materials – helping your bottom line in the process?

*Would you like to learn from others already working towards ‘Industrial Symbiosis’, sharing of knowledge and expertise in this area to have a positive impact on our critical resources and create an important cornerstone of your customer facing ESG policy?
