Wasteline

“Food businesses producing more than 50kg of food waste each week must present it for separate collection, unless they are in a rural area.” (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-business-25564265)

This ties in with the new year Zero Waist Scotland policy.

Fly-chipping

“New Scottish waste regulations which come into force in January 2014 will make it compulsory for all businesses to separate materials for recycling. … These plans may help to prevent fly-tipping (the illegal dumping of rubbish in unauthorised locations) by businesses. Fly-tipping blights the environment and can have fatal consequences for any wildlife.” (http://scottishwildlifetrust.org.uk/article/trust-supports-scottish-government-plans-to-cut-waste/)

However, citizens are reminded that our ‘healthy’ chip shop trade sector depends on fly papers.
