Government program to minimise waste

Surrey Reuse Network (SRN) developed through close collaboration of the founding member organisations and the full co-operation, guidance, support and financial investment of Surrey County Council. WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) also provided skills and resources with initial management support delivered through the ReAlliance and WRAP Rotate third sector capacity building programmes. SRN and its member charities have to objective to supply of donated furniture and other household items to those in a vulnerable situation or on benefits, provide work placements and training opportunities for long term unemployed and other disadvantaged groups, reduce the amount of domestic material going to landfill through the reuse and repair of donated items, and increase public awareness about waste minimisation.
