Be part of the solution

We want to build a network of businesses across Wales that are dedicated to the Caru Cymru movement and celebrate the positive actions they’re taking to eliminate litter and waste.

We’re encouraging businesses and organisations to pledge their commitment to four Rs:  Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Repair.

Tell us what actions you’re taking by completing the simple pledge form below. We’ll then provide promotional materials to help you publicise your involvement with Keep Wales Tidy and inspire others to join the Caru Cymru movement.

Helpful information and resources

We know there is a lot of advice out there for businesses looking to cut their waste. Some of this advice is great; some is less helpful and potentially misleading. Compostable materials, biodegradables, recycling infrastructure, circular economy – doing the right thing can seem overwhelming! Not sure where to start?

Review where you're at

Carrying out a waste audit will help you prioritise what areas or items you need to focus on and provide a baseline to measure your success.

Plan your actions
