Recycling and waste roadshow

A series of free drop-in events on new regulations surrounding the presentation and disposal of waste by businesses and organisations has been extended.

Councillor Stuart Bell, SBC’s Executive Member for Economic Development, said: “It is vital all businesses and organisations in are aware of the new legislation introduced by the Scottish Government on January 1.

“We hope the roadshow will provide the necessary information to allow companies to comply with the regulations, which aim to improve recycling across the Borders and Scotland, but at the same time not adversely affect the day-to-day running of their business.”
