Bins, recycling and rubbish

Recycling - how are we doing?

The Scottish Government's Zero Waste Plan aims to make Scotland a zero waste society. Waste is minimised and all waste is seen as a resource.

To help Scotland achieve this, the Government has set a target for us to recycle 60% of our waste by 2020.

How are we doing so far?
