Waste and Resources Action Programme
Is it a WRAP?
This blog wants its readers to be aware of key agencies and organisations that are big influencers in the field of waste collection and management. An example of such an organisation is WRAP or the Waste and Resources Action Programme. This is a registered charity based in Banbury. Their aim is to contribute to the intellectual production and waste management of products. So, for example, they are interested in how products are designed and manufactured and whether this process is recycle-friendly for when the product reaches its ‘end of life’ stage. As an organisation they are also interested in the phase that comes between production and disposal which is all about consumption. WRAP are practical minded in that they produce tools, information and practical guidance for government, for agencies and businesses to enable them to make better and efficient use of resources.
Why should we be interested in WRAP?
The simple answer is that they know what they are doing and they are succeeding. Between 2010 and 2015 in England, WRAP initiatives lead to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by almost 50 million tonnes (Mt), which is approximately the same as the annual carbon dioxide emissions of Portugal. That is impressive. AM Skip Hire are a family run business and like many of their customers they are keenly interested in the environment. AM Skip Hire offer various skip sizes including the mini skip. This means that if you have waste at home that needs disposing of you needn’t wait. You can arrange disposal quickly, easily and best of all in an environmentally responsible and friendly manner. It is encouraging to know there are charities like WRAP doing an amazing work. We all have an opportunity to help the environment and that can include taking that the first step to hire a skip.
