Making Waste Work : North Sea Sustainable Waste Management Project (Making Waste Work)
Start date: Feb 27, 2003, End date: Aug 30, 2006 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Making Waste Work aimed to minimise the volume of waste produced, manage it in a more sustainable way and improve public awareness of waste issues. Achievements: One of the main achievements of the Making Waste Work was the production of a waste strategy and accompanying reports to describe the project activities and hence guide others in best practice for reducing and managing waste. In particular the raising of public motivation and awareness has been successfully piloted as a main aim for many of the local implementation projects.Tangible examples for project results are for instance that the city Stockton, UK has reaped huge rewards through cross-fertilisation in terms of inspiration for innovative developments, which have manifested themselves in the installation of the recycling shed on the civic amenity site and the creation of an internet exchange portal for commercial waste as a resource. Furthermore, participation in the Making Waste Work project has enabled the municipality of Falköping, Sweden, to progress with biogas development, partially related to the LIP Collecting organic waste from blocks of flats. In Norway, the project has lead to improvements to the system of collecting household waste in Moss Kommune.
