2013 – A Big Year for Waste

The big news this year is the introduction of the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 which make a number of changes related to the collection and disposal of waste in Scotland. You need to be ready by 31 December 2013. Measures introduced by the Regulations which will affect your business include:-

• a requirement for businesses to present dry recyclables (metals, plastics, paper, card and glass) and food waste of more than 50 kg/week for collection from end of 2013, with those producing less than 50kg/week exempt until end 2015

• a ban on materials collected separately for recycling going to landfill or incineration (end 2013)
