Resource Wise Programme

The Resource Wise Programme is a free programme designed to help your organisation, whether you're a business or school, to reduce waste to landfill.

We are here to work with you to improve how your organisation manages resources.

The programme consists of five stages for organisations to work through. Each stage has actions that involve education and reducing waste to landfill.
