Passing on key skills and knowledge to the next generation is extremely important to us, and that’s why we continue to invest in educational projects.

Since opening a community educational facility on our premises a couple of years ago we have enabled many to learn with us across a broad range of subjects – designed with the National Curriculum in mind – as well as seeing first-hand how AWM divert waste from landfill by producing refuse derived fuel (RDF). Resources include interactive videos, work sheets and waste audits.

The facility, which can accommodate community and school groups, has been created as part of our commitment to engaging with and supporting community initiatives.

Education courses are free and available by contacting Mike Robinson on 0845 456 7128.


The Urban Project

By providing the community with social change we aim to provide a framework for people to interact and communicate freely without inhibition. As a leading waste management company we care about the environment as a whole – not just that which governs our natural resources but that which governs the people that live in it, too.

Because of this, we set up The Zaika Group for women and children from deprived areas to meet new people while learning new cookery skills. Empowering residents to dedicate a small amount of time within their neighbourhoods has a huge impact in benefiting them – both personally and as part of a wider community.

Since then, we have run a string of successful initiatives, including ‘Freshen Up Frizinghall’, which brought local businesses, residents, community associations, local authorities and religious groups together to clean the streets. More than 60 tonnes of rubbish have been cleared over the course of this program – all with sustainability in mind.

Collectively, this group of initiatives is known as The Urban Project. We welcome any suggestions and invite you all to get involved!
