Zero Waste Scotland Launches Campaign To Highlight New Recycling Rules

Scottish businesses are being urged to increase their levels of recycled materials before new regulations come into force. The Scottish government, which has said it wants 70% of waste to be recycled by 2025, passed The Waste (Scotland) Regulations Act last year. From January 2014, all organisations will have to recycle their plastic, metal, glass, paper and food, or risk a fine.

It is estimated that Scotland is currently paying £95m in landfill taxes by throwing away over £90m-worth of recyclable materials each year. The Zero Waste Scotland campaign is aimed at helping organisations to think about how they recycle their materials as well as the possible financial savings which could be made.

The information campaign runs throughout September and October.
