Zero Waste Scotland has published the findings of a study looking at the potential risk to human health linked to reduced frequency collections of non-recyclable waste.

This report provides an overview of the findings from the study, and includes commentary on the results and an interpretation of what these mean in the context of potential health impacts for householders, collection staff and waste site staff. Furthermore, this report outlines issues for councils to consider when reviewing non-recyclable waste collection frequency, including factors that should be included when assessing risk.
