Norwich BID launches exciting ‘Upcycle your Waste’ project to create a Circular Economy in the region.

‘Upcycle your Waste’ is a new international three year-project brought to you by Norwich BID and Interreg. This ambitious, Europe-wide project has Norwich as one of only two cities involved representing the UK.

Norwich BID is working with six other partners in four countries (Economisch Huis Oostend, Kent County Council, Katholieke Hogeschool Vives Zuid, OD IJmond, City of Roubaix & Technische Universiteit Delft) on this programme, with the aim of getting 20% of our collective pre-existing waste stream upcycled. 

The aim is to support your business in reducing its costs, by handling and transforming your waste into new resources. The project is entirely free to participate in, and Norwich BID are looking for many people to get involved as it looks at ways Norwich’s business community can reduce it’s impact on the environment, creating a circular economy in the region. 

The first phase of the project will be a 20 minute phone interview, to evaluate your business barriers and drivers for upcycling. In this initial phase of the project, Norwich BID need 100 businesses to take part. The more businesses they can speak to, the better they can plan for how we can use our wasted resources to benefit the community and the planet.

If your business would like to be involved please get in touch with projects@norwichbid.co.uk
