Zero Waste Scotland (ZWS) was a programme set up in 2010 to support the implementation of the Scottish Government’s Zero Waste Plan. In 2014, ZWS became an independent not-for-profit company, funded by the Scottish Government to deliver circular economy and low carbon policy priorities. Scotland has realised the benefits of being a frontrunner in waste reduction and the government has consistently supported local authorities to drive up recycling rates. This ambition for a Zero Waste society evolved into strong support for a Circular Economy.
