Waste reduction volunteers

If you are passionate about reducing waste, we would like to hear from you. The authority is on the hunt for volunteers to advise and empower local residents to reduce waste, compost at home and make the most of leftover food.

The Waste Reduction Volunteer projects' aim is to reach out to the wider community and inspire the public to change their thinking about waste.  Our team of dedicated Waste Reduction Volunteers attend road shows and deliver talks throughout the area, speaking to people about home composting and food waste reduction.

There's never a dull moment. Every month brings a fabulous new opportunity, whether it's delivering talks to the community, working with school gardening clubs, or chatting about Love Food Hate Waste at food festivals. Our volunteers are on hand to inspire and truly make a difference.

The waste reduction volunteer project is a joint scheme being run by Cheshire East Council and Cheshire West and Chester Council.

Would you like to become a Waste Reduction Volunteer?

Each volunteer receives training, travel expenses and membership of the Waste Reduction Volunteer Reward Scheme and in return will be asked to participate in a number of local events and projects, throughout the year, choosing from a range of activities such as, delivering talks, supporting their local schools, attending large events and shows, holding workshops and demonstrations.
