Scot­tish busi­nesses to be­come waste war­riors in bid to help en­vi­ron­ment

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

SCOT­TISH busi­nesses have come to­gether to help the en­vi­ron­ment as “waste war­riors”. More than 200 Scot­tish busi­nesses, groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions have signed up to back Zero Waste Scot­land’s Re­cy­cle Week 2017, with plenty space for lo­cal busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions in Aberdeen­shire to get in­volved too.

Re­cy­cle Week is the an­nual Uk-wide cam­paign to raise aware­ness of the im­por­tance of re­cy­cling, with peo­ple all over Aberdeen­shire en­cour­aged to re­cy­cle as much as they can. While re­cy­cling num­bers have im­proved re­cently, around 60% of house­hold waste is still not re­cy­cled and Zero Waste Scot­land want to en­cour­age every­one to do their bit.

Iain Gul­land, Zero Waste Scot­land’s chief ex­ec­u­tive, said: ”While re­cy­cling in Scot­land has vastly im­proved over the past few years, there is def­i­nitely still more to be done.”

He also added that Re­cy­cle Week is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for every­one in Aberdeen­shire to play their part and be­come a waste war­rior. Re­cy­cle Week will take place from Septem­ber 25 to Oc­to­ber 1, and busi­nesses can play their part by host­ing events, in­tro­duc­ing new re­cy­cling ser­vices or even just shar­ing Zero Waste Scot­land’s so­cial me­dia posts.
