Wednesday, October 3, 2012

2012 is a significant milestone year for Scottish waste and resources policy, with the approval of the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012.
These set out a legislative framework for increased recovery and processing of a range of valuable resources, and indicate a clear direction of travel towards Scotland’s Zero Waste intentions.
In this first Scotland Policy Statement our objective is to highlight some of the key opportunities and challenges presented by the Scottish resources policy agenda.
