Going Green

From 1 January 2014 New Waste Regulations come into force

The Waste (Scotland) Regulations will come into force for most businesses on 1st January 2014 requiring materials such as glass, plastics, paper and card to be presented for recycling. A separate food waste collection will also be required for businesses working in food retail, food production or preparation.

Upon the regulations coming in to force, non-complying businesses could be penalised, including the imposition of fines up to the statutory maximum of £10,000. The imposition of penalties could also see non-complying businesses suffer damage to their reputation and lose business as a result.

See more information on the changes here at Resource Efficient Scotland.

To raise awareness of the project, as well as allowing businesses to take steps to be compliant with incoming legislation, Dunfermline Going Green are pleased to offer FREE internal paper recycling bins and internal food containers, plus bin liners, to BID Members.
