Good practice guidance to prevent waste crime

Crime associated with waste services is a problem across the UK and beyond.

It is one that Scotland in particular is taking increasingly seriously. The Environmental Crime Taskforce and the Scottish waste industry are working together to tackle what has become a multi-million pound criminal enterprise.

The Good Practice Guidance for Preventing Waste Crime was created jointly between the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and Zero Waste Scotland.

Through this guidance, we aim to spread the message of the need to be aware of criminality in the waste sector so that it reaches public bodies, private businesses and the community at large. We also aim to provide public bodies with the tools they need to design effective procurement processes that deliver the waste services they require while protecting as far as possible from the risk of awarding contracts to those engaged in crime.
