Abi Reid baking away,  reducing food waste across South Yorkshire

Abi Reid

I was 20 when I realised that I wanted to work in recycling and environmental education whilst attending a workshop about food packaging with a school in Lancashire.  I’ve worked in waste management for the past 17 years in all sorts of backgrounds but always with an interest in education and engagement.  I absolutely love the industry and the way that it constantly changes and progresses, I’m particularly interested in the technology that we utilise as an industry and how this is applied.  I think my interest in reducing food waste comes from my love of cooking and being taught to cook by my Nan who would never let anything go to waste.

I am new to the Waste Less team so every day is a school-day, however, I love to learn about all things recycling!

Waste area I am passionate about

I have recently moved house which came with a very overgrown garden, so I am passionate about learning how to compost and grown my own food!
