You must comply with the significant legislation changes that come into force on 1st January 2014 – By using Max Recycle ensures you will comply and save.
What is Zero Waste Scotland?
The Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 require your business to take the following actions or face enforcement and substantial fines*:
Your business MUST present recyclables such as: metal, plastic, glass, paper and card separately for collection from 1 January 2014.
If you run a business which produces over 50 kg of food waste per week, you must present it for separate collection from 1 January 2014 (in certain rural areas exceptions apply).
The requirement to present food waste for separate collection will extend to all businesses which produce over 5 kg of food waste per week from 1 January 2016.
Where food collections are available, it will be illegal to dispose of food into the public sewer, for example, by using a macerator.
While the new regulations don’t kick in until January 2014, you’ll find it pays to
start preparing now.
