The capital of Scotland, once a part of Midlothian, now sits as the place to be for education, law, literature, science, and engineering in Scotland. This includes one of the most important inventions in human history, the telephone. The telephone was invented by Edinburgh born Alexander Graham Bell, who was a founder of the Bell Telephone Company in America. This company was bought out by its own subsidiary, American Telephone & Telegraph Company (AT&T), for legal reasons in 1899.

Edinburgh is a popular tourist destination, as it attracts over 1 million people to the city every year. The second most in the UK. The city’s history and culture is recognised as Edinburgh is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Being the capital, Edinburgh is a city that has influence, and that holds true when it comes to the environment. Waste disposal is important not just to preserve the history of the city, but also in reaching the goal for a better future. The most recent statistics show that the current recycling rate in Edinburgh is 42%, just below the UK average of 43%. It is predicted that Edinburgh will hit the UK average this year, but there is no guarantee.

As part of the Scottish Government’s Zero Waste Plan, the aim is to have 70% of all waste in Scotland to be recycled by 2025. This is going to be difficult to achieve, and is why you will need waste services that are professional, efficient and reliable. At Direct365, that is what you will get.
