The Scottish Government has announced an agreement with the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) on a consistent new system of recycling for Scotland.

Cabinet Secretary for the Environment, Richard Lochhead, claims the new system will make it easier for people to recycle and help local communities to reap the benefits of a more ‘circular’ economy.

Councils may sign up to the voluntary charter from January, after which they will receive support from Zero Waste Scotland in developing plans to introduce the new system.

Iain Gulland lowCommenting on the announcement, Iain Gulland, Chief Executive of  Zero Waste Scotland (pictured left), said: ‘Today’s announcement marks an important stage in our commitment to increase recycling.

‘Adoption of the Charter by councils will help provide clarity and consistency for householders and the resource management industry, and  we will be ready to support councils who sign up to it.’
