Could Leith be the next Zero Waste community in Scotland?

Following on from the success of Dunbar and the Isle of Bute in becoming established Zero Waste Towns, Remade in Edinburgh are supporting environmental charity, Changeworks, to put forward the case for Leith to be funded as the next Zero Waste community in Scotland.

As part of an initiative launched by Zero Waste Scotland to work towards achieving Scotland’s ambitious national targets – including a 70% household recycling rate and a 33% reduction in wasted food by 2025 – the chosen application will work with local residents and businesses to reduce waste and promote reuse, repair and resource efficiency within the community, contributing towards a more circular economy.

We’ve had so much interest and support from Leithers for our repair activities, so fingers crossed we’ll be able to expand these in the future so that everyone can access them, and have the opportunity to work with the many other great community organisations in Leith.
