Waste and Recycling

GEF’s Waste and Recycling Group encourages people, organisations and companies to reduce the amount of waste that they produce, and so reduce pollution. This can be done by lowering consumption or by using resources more efficiently; Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Over the years we have encouraged Guildford Borough Council to increase recycling and supported them in their efforts. We also comment on waste policy issues, especially during consultations. We are keen to solicit speakers on the topic of waste reduction, from reducing waste by better manufacture, through to improving the way that the waste is dealt with; if you or someone you know of would be interested in giving a (virtual!) talk to the Forum on this topic, please contact our Events Officer. 

And for advice on how you can reduce the amount you waste, please download our information sheet.
