S5W-05894: Maurice Golden (West Scotland)

Date lodged: 22 December 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what percentage of non-exempted households it anticipates will have access to a separate food waste collection service by 2021.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 10 January 2017

The Scottish Government's ambition is for every household in Scotland to have access to a food waste service. However, it is for local authorities to work towards compliance with the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012, by continuing to roll out household food waste collection services in their local areas. The rate of increase from the present figure of 80% will be dependent on that work.
