Aberdeenshire Council Targets Food Waste

With the Scottish Government proclaiming its intention to become a zero waste society by 2025, many Scottish authorities are facing their biggest challenge to date and are exploring new ways to divert more waste away from landfill.

2008 saw Aberdeenshire Council expand its recycling services and become one of the first Scottish authorities to introduce a food waste collection scheme. Aberdeenshire was also the first local authority to use Straight’s 23 litre Kerbside Caddy, which has been specifically developed for the collection of food waste and has since become the leading container used for this purpose across the UK.
