The strategic direction for waste policy in Scotland is set out in The Scottish Zero Waste Plan.
All councils are aiming to meet the target of 70% recycling and a maximum of 5% of waste going to landfill by 2025.
To help reach this target The Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 came into force in 2014. The key points are as follows:
To achieve the targets, councils introduced waste separation schemes for all households. Initial consultation took place with householders across Forth Valley and details of the consultation are available in the Forth Valley customer consultation final report
To check that we are meeting our targets, waste collection information is gathered and submitted to Waste Data Flow.
This is a web-based system that brings together all the information that councils collect. It is then accessible for use by government departments, agencies, institutions, and organisations.
All of this information is publicly available.
