Local Waste Plan

Local Waste Plan

The strategic direction for waste policy in Scotland is set out in The Scottish Zero Waste Plan.

All councils are aiming to meet the target of 70% recycling and a maximum of 5% of waste going to landfill by 2025.

To help reach this target The Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 came into force in 2014. The key points are as follows:

  • Businesses must present metal, plastic, glass, paper and card separately for collection.
  • If you run a food business which produces over 50 kg of food waste per week, you must present it for separate collection.
  • The requirement to present food waste for separate collection will extend to all food businesses which produce over 5 kg of food waste per week from 1 January 2016.
  • Where food collections are available, it will be illegal to dispose of food into the public sewer, for example, by using a macerator.

 In Scotland; Summary Reports are also available from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.
