Why is Waste Management in Scotland important?
The country of Scotland has a reputation of natural beauty, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea and home to beautiful National Parks, Highlands and important wildlife both on land and in surrounding waters. It’s a place that Scottish greats are proud to call home, including Poet Laureate Carol Anne Duffy, creator of Sherlock Holmes Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and great music artists from Calvin Harris to Susan Boyle.
The region has seen economic and cultural revival in recent decades, with its capital city Edinburgh and it’s largest city Glasgow thriving with business and tourism. Scotland hosts many international events, including music festivals like TRNSMT, arts festivals like Edinburgh Fringe and huge sporting events like The Open Championship, the world's oldest golf tournament. The economy is mixed, with many businesses in heavy industry as well as a lot of service companies offering hospitality to influxes of visitors. With so much commercial activity, waste production never ceases – but it can be managed.
When you think of Scottish culture, you may think of bagpipes, Irn-Bru and kilts, but at Direct365 we think of the recycling success story that Scotland has had in recent years. Between 2015 and 2016 figures, Scotland’s recycling rate rose from 50% to 61%; however the country is still in second place in the UK, falling just behind Wales.
The Scottish Government have visions for a zero waste society, requiring businesses to help minimise landfill by disposing of waste ethically and legally. Zero Waste Scotland have set a 70% recycling goal by 2025; to achieve this, companies are encouraged to establish good practice by working with Waste Management providers. Read on to find out why you should pick Direct365 to help your business thrive.
