Waste Regulations

The Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 were passed by the Scottish Parliament on 9 May 2012.

Regulations require businesses to separate the following materials for recycling:

  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Plastic
  • Cardboard
  • Paper
  • Food waste

You are exempt from separating food waste only if you:

  • don’t prepare or sell food
  • qualify as a rural location
  • produce less than 5kg of food waste per week

If you don’t recycle, the fine can be up to £10,000.

ACE CAN WORK WITH YOUR ORGANISATION TO ENSURE YOU ARE COMPLYING WITH THE REGULATIONS.
