Scots encouraged to be waste-conscious this Christmas
Zero Waste Scotland is asking the nation’s residents to be less wasteful this Christmas by recycling presents, gifting experiences, and going electronic.
Christmas is the season of overindulgence, extravagance, and celebration. The time of year when no one expects an excuse for overeating or stretching the budget.
According to Zero Waste Scotland, Scots will use over 19 million miles of wrapping paper, send over 95 million Christmas cards, and waste an estimated 50 million tonnes of leftover food.
To reduce the inevitable wastage, Zero Waste Scotland has shared its top tips for making 2016 a ‘green’ Christmas:
Speaking of gifting experiences, Iain Gulland, Chief Executive of Zero Waste Scotland, said: “Scotland is really leading the way on growing the circular economy, so it’s fantastic to see gift options emerging that let people give more meaningful presents that are unique and better for the environment.”

Service is really good, had many problems in the past with previous suppliers however since been with Business Waste I have not had any problems what so ever. From the start of the agreement the sales team was really helpful and helped with my requirements. I am in a very tricky location with not much room to store a container however I was provided with many options from the sales rep to accommodate my requirements. Customer Service from the staff is outstanding. Definitely recommend 100%.
Great friendly service and really helpful staff!
