The Challenge

Bioregional consider this to be the challenge we face globally in relation to Zero Waste;

  • the waste from discarded products and packaging which is creating a huge disposal problem while wasting valuable resources

The Goals

Bioregional identify the following goals, set so we can all contribute to a common and ultimate goal;

  • to reduce wasteful consumption
  • to maximise reuse and recycling
  • to aim for zero waste to landfill

Green Centre ZERO WASTE actions

Local actions

  • In 2006 we set up our Community Recycling Programme collecting just 6 items; aluminium foil,  foreign currency, plastic milk bottle tops, mobile phones, postage stamps and printer cartridges. Fast forward to 2021 and we collect 50+ items. Visit our dedicated recycling page for more information.
  • In 2008 we launched our on-line Green A to Z providing details of reuse & recycle opportunities across the city and beyond for Brighton & Hove residents. We have continued to share everything we learn through this platform. Residents also contribute.
  • In 2009 we focused our energies on the 5 stages of the Waste Hierarchy and took a step up the ladder and launched our Community Reuse Market giving & selling 2nd hand items. In our 1st year we raised enough funds to cover our core costs.
  • In 2010 as we began to gain confidence in ourselves we sought to collaborate with other local organisations. Meet some of your local ZERO Waste champions
