Zero Waste Scotland 190px

Communities in Scotland will be able to bid for a share of up to 500,000 pounds to reduce single-use plastics that blight their areas from ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland. The news was announced by Cabinet Secretary for the Environment Roseanna Cunningham, at the first national summit on reducing plastic waste and marine litter.
The new Action on Plastic Zero Waste Towns initiative, an extension of the existing Zero Waste Towns programme, will provide community groups with funding to deliver actions which would benefit their environment and local economy. This could include the introduction of water bottle refill facilities, switching all single-use items in the community to the same material to make recycling easier, or replacing single-use takeaway containers with re-usable systems.
