Minimise Your Waste: Maximise Your Business – ‘Upcycle Your Waste’ goes live!


Kent County Council strives to support economic growth whilst protecting and enhancing our natural and historic environment, creating and sustaining communities that are vibrant, healthy and resilient. We aim to minimise costs by cutting emissions and maximise the opportunities of the low carbon market.

The objective of Upcycle Your Waste is to accelerate the adoption of circular business cases by SMEs that transform waste flows into resources at local level. We aim to achieve this by developing and introducing knowledge, tools and facilities that enable SMEs and local authorities to make this transition. 

‘Upcycle Your Waste’ offers a perfect chance for firms to realise the benefits afforded by reviewing what they use, what they discard and how they can work with others to realise new business cases from this ‘waste’.
