Liverpool youth development charity Positive Futures are living their desire to support Liverpool’s youth in a sustainable manner by working alongside Fresh Start Waste to ensure zero waste to landfill, and at zero cost for August.
Fresh Start, who are a local carbon conscious waste collection provider, is providing free waste collections for a month by way of supporting the charity through August – their busiest month of the year.
During the month over 100 young people per day will visit the centre, which is located between the City’s two largest football clubs Liverpool F.C. and Everton F.C.
Sean Martins, Head of Sales and Marketing at Fresh Start said “Positive Futures is a shining example of the good that can be done by providing support to young people in Liverpool. They really do go above and beyond in doing whatever it takes to help each and every young person who needs it. They give them somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to, and help many young people with complex needs by empowering them to achieve their potential. And they want to do all of this with a focus on sustainability so we are happy to support them by providing a zero to landfill waste service at zero cost for August”
Positive Futures is a youth development charity supporting young people in Liverpool. They believe in Empowering young people to achieve their potential – and their team are committed to supporting every young person to achieve that potential. They do this through their open access targeted support work and personal development interventions which collectively support thousands of young people in Liverpool every year.
As an organisation with a commitment to minimising environmental impact, Positive Futures partnered with Fresh Start who are family-run and operate a zero waste to landfill policy to deliver their regular waste collection service.
The service includes collection on a regular basis of their mixed general waste, which is processed at Fresh Start’s materials recovery facility where recyclable material is removed, and residual non-recyclable waste is then processed as Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) at an energy from waste facility, to generate green energy to power North West homes.
