“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.


“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.
