An app that measures the success of electrical repair workshops is among 10 innovations to receive government development funding to cut England’s waste.
The Restart Project will receive a share of £330,000 doled out by the Waste and Resources Action Programme’s Innovation in Waste Prevention Fund.
The 10 winners will benefit from the first of three phases of the fund, which aims to get projects underway that will slash the amount of waste that has to be managed in the country.
Waste minister Dan Rogerson said: “Preventing waste before it is even created not only protects the environment but also makes good business sense.
“That is why we are committed to helping people make the most of the materials that are available to them, creating a stronger economy and a more sustainable society.
“We had an incredible response to the first round of the IWP Fund and the successful projects will take a range of exciting repair and renew projects to communities in England.”
