Waste and recycling facilities

Scotland produces millions of tonnes of waste and recycling every year. These materials come from many different sources including households, business and industry. All of this material has to be collected, transported, stored and then processed, treated, recycled or disposed of correctly.

Making sure that our waste and recycling is dealt with properly is essential to protect the environment, animal and human health as well as helping Scotland’s businesses and the economy.
