Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee (LARAC)

Description

LARAC was formed in 1985 to represent the emerging voice of local government recycling officers. Full Membership is open to any local authority within the UK. We represent local authority views in waste and recycling issues, and we are run by an Executive of 20 local authority waste management officers. We have members from authorities in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales including associates from the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. Associate membership is open to any Local Authority with a waste function within the EU.

LARAC's vision is to be the leading voice for local authorities on recycling, waste and resource management.

Our mission is to influence UK waste policy for the benefit of our members in a manner which advances the waste and reource industry; to provide membership services in a cost effective and quality manner so that our members are well informed and to provide premier local authority national waste conferences that act as a catalyst for information dissemination and promotion of good practice within local authorities.

LARAC believes that all material currently see as 'waste' is in fact a potential resource and that it should not be disposed of by any means that does not recover a significant proportion of its value. Responsible stewardship of the environment is extremely important. Applied to municipal waste management this means that:

  • Waste generation must be stopped at source wherever possible and products should be designed for durability, repair and re-use
  • Discarded materials should be collected so that they can be recycled or composted
  • Where recycling isn’t possible material should be processed so as to recover useful stable organic material and/or energy
  • Use of landfill should be reduced to the absolute minimum.

London Re-Use Network

Description

The London Re-use Network is made up of charities, social enterprises, and non-profit organisations who work together to increase re-use across London.

We collect unwanted furniture, appliances and household items. These are checked for quality and safety before being refurbished and passed onto new homes.

The London Re-use Network aims to change the way people think about unwanted items. We want to show people that re-use is a great idea for their bank balance, and the environment as well.

Re-use can help us to protect the environment and support our communities. By re-using goods we are stopping great products from being sent to landfill or for incineration. Re-use is helping to create jobs and volunteering opportunities in your local area. We provide training in furniture repair, administration and retail skills, helping people back into work.

National Community Wood Recycling Project

Description

The NCWRP was founded in 2003 to encourage and assist the setting up and continued development of community-focused wood recycling projects based on the award-winning Brighton & Hove Wood Recycling Project. The aim of these wood recycling social enterprises is to save resources by rescuing and reusing ‘waste’ timber that would otherwise be land filled, and to create sustainable jobs and training and volunteering opportunities for local people - especially those who might find it more difficult to enter/re-enter the labour market. The website is packed with lots of information invaluable to those who want to start a project and is regularly updated.

WRAP

Description

WRAP’s vision is a world where resources are used sustainably. Its work helps people recycle more and waste less, both at home and at work, and offers economic as well as environmental benefits.

WRAP works with a wide range of partners, from major UK businesses, trade bodies and local authorities through to individuals looking for practical advice. WRAP always aims to work together with others to achieve the best results.

WRAP has clear guiding principles:

  • A focus on preventing waste;
  • Getting good value for money for the tax-payer and proving it;
  • Working in partnership and supporting the work of others;
  • Being flexible and business like.

WRAP supports a circular economy. A circular economy is about valuing products differently and creating a more robust economy in the process. By assessing how we design, make, sell, re-use and recycle products we can determine how to get the maximum value from them, both in use and at the end of their life.

Wrap is funded by all four governments across the UK and the EU and runs programmes in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
