The Waste Nothing Challenge

The Bristol Waste Nothing Challenge is back! Over the course of a year, 100 households from across Bristol will be learning how to reduce their waste. Can they get to zero?

The Waste Nothing Challenge supports households to drastically reduce the amount of waste they produce over the course of a year, with the ultimate goal of reaching zero waste.

Bristol Waste and our #WasteNothing Partners provide guidance and resources to participating households including a starter kit of reusable items, free or discounted workshops and activities, discounts at partner shops, a supportive online forum, and a programme of actions to follow throughout the year.

To keep a record of their progress, households are given scales to weigh and log their waste and recycling every week.

How did our 2019 Waste Nothing Challengers get on?
