Zero Waste Scotland hailed as exciting opportunity

The Scottish Government’s new waste policy delivery programme Zero Waste Scotland was today hailed as an exciting opportunity.

The new programme will integrate the activities of current programmes WRAP Scotland, Zero Waste Scotland, Remade Scotland, Envirowise Scotland, NISP, Keep Scotland Beautiful and the Community Recycling Network for Scotland.

The Zero Waste Scotland programme will be led by WRAP’s Scottish Director Iain Gulland.

Iain will be working with the Scottish Government and partners over the coming weeks to finalise a project plan and to ensure that transition from the current model is as smooth as possible.

Iain Gulland said:

“The opportunity to develop the Zero Waste Scotland programme is exciting.”

“Bringing together the delivery of Zero Waste programmes in Scotland will enable us to deliver better and more efficient services to consumers, local authorities and businesses.  It will give greater clarity to those seeking advice and support on Zero Waste, and it will mean services will be better integrated and able to benefit from economies of scale.

“We will be looking to make the development of the Zero Waste Scotland programme as smooth as possible and will be working with partners to make this happen.”
