Scottish Household Recycling Charter and its associated Code of Practice
The Scottish Household Recycling Charter is designed to simplify recycling across the country, making it easier for people to sort waste and improve the quality of the recycling. It is at the heart of Scotland's first circular economy strategy Making Things Last. The Charter and its associated Code of Practice are intended to harmonise local authority household waste collection services across Scotland. This should make it easier for householders to understand recycling systems, increasing the amount of material that is recycled while lowering levels of contamination. The consistent approach to recycling can deliver genuine efficiencies, and help us take further steps towards a circular economy in Scotland.
Aim to increase the quantity and quality of recycling and make further progress towards Scotland's waste targets and overall transition to a circular economy.
