15 June 2009Scottish Recycling Study

Report Summary

Following discussions between the Scottish Government and COSLA in late 2008, Remade Scotland was asked to assist with providing a national overview and summary of the estimated recycling percentage Scotland might achieve in the year 2010 and 2013 based on Councils firm plans.

The aim of this project was to provide the Scottish Government and COSLA with a better understanding of the impact of Councils' firm recycling plans on their ability to achieve the 2010 and 2013 recycling and LAS targets.

The project objectives were to:

  • Capture details of the firm plans (including predicted tonnage) of Council recycling services scheduled to be rolled out by, and that will impact on, 2010 and 2013 achievements.
  • Thus, produce a projected national overview of Scotland's recycling percentage and performance against the LAS targets in 2010 and 2013.
