Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012

The Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 were passed by the Scottish Parliament on 9 May 2012. The new regulations will help Scotland become one of the most resource efficient nations in Europe.

The recycling requirements of the new regulations are set to be phased in over several years:

  • From 1 January 2014, businesses are to present metal, plastic, glass, paper and card for separate collection.
  • Food businesses producing over 50kg of food waste per week are required to present that food waste for separate collection from the same date - 1 January 2014.
  • From 1 January 2016, this will be extended to any food business that produces over 5kg of food waste per week.
