Route Map: A plan for waste targets to 2025 and beyond

The Scottish Government, together with Zero Waste Scotland, SEPA and other partners, is focused on how we best manage Scotland’s waste in order to contribute towards Scotland’s ambition to achieve net zero carbon emissions.

As part of the 2020 Programme for Government, the Scottish Government made commitments to:

  • Develop a new Route Map to reduce waste and meet our waste and recycling targets for 2025; and  
  • Work with partners to develop a post-2025 route map to identify how the waste and resources sector will contribute towards Scotland’s journey towards net zero in the period to 2030 and beyond. 

The Route Map will be a strategic plan to achieve Scotland’s zero waste and circular economy ambitions, and to contribute to wider net zero ambitions, including the major policy interventions and milestones required to achieve this ambition.

Zero Waste Scotland is facilitating pre-consultation engagement with a range of key stakeholders, which will be completed before Christmas. A formal consultation is expected in 2022.
