Take the Change Waste Challenge
Take the Change Waste Challenge

As Scotland’s leading waste management firm, we are always looking for more ways to benefit the environment – that’s why we’re calling on Scottish businesses to join us in our new Change Waste Challenge to eradicate 3 million kilos of waste by 2022.


With your help, we have already recycled more than 7,000 tonnes of waste material in the past 12 months. Our research shows that most business waste contains 50% recyclable material, so if our clients collectively reduce their general waste by 50%, we’d eliminate 3 million kilos of waste annually!


The #ChangeWasteChallenge supports the Scottish Government’s mission to recycle 70% of all Scotland’s waste by 2025 and is aimed at businesses like yours in Edinburgh and Glasgow. The launch coincides with European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) from 16-24 November which will raise awareness about sustainable resource and waste management.

We’re working smarter to change behaviours and perceptions about waste and enable businesses to better understand its true impact and encourage more effective recycling, beyond EWWR and into the future. Collectively, we believe it’s possible for every business to reduce their general waste by at least 50%, like so many of our customers have already done.


Behaviours and perceptions about waste need to change so we can help combat the climate emergency. We all have a responsibility and we can all do more, and one of the most important places to start is with food. Reducing food waste and ensuring it is properly recycled will do more to prevent the threat of climate change than removing every single car from the road across the world!
