Scottish waste plan comes together

Scottish waste plan comes together
Scotland has united several major waste organisations following confusion from local councils about recycling targets.

The Zero Waste Scotland programme merges the expertise of six government-funded groups in a bid to create a 'Scottish-focused' recycling plan that can meet targets that exceed that of Europe on waste reduction.

The scheme will be led by WRAP Scotland, a not-for-profit body that offers councils and organisations guidance in reducing waste.

Ian Gulland, head of WRAP, said: "Bringing together the delivery of Zero Waste programmes in Scotland will enable us to deliver better and more efficient services to consumers, local authorities and businesses.

"It will give greater clarity to those seeking advice and support on Zero Waste and it will mean services will be better integrated and able to benefit from economies of scale."

Earlier in the month, the Scottish government was criticised in a committee report for not supporting councils enough as they try to implement recycling programmes.
