Bulky Waste

We are aiming to reduce the volume of waste going to landfill by finding recycling, re-use and energy-from-waste solutions for bulky waste streams from public and private sector sources.

The project focuses on developing collection and recycling services for bulky waste items such as furniture, carpets, mattresses, plasterboard and large plastic items.

  • Assist local authorities and other organisations to meet recycling targets
  • Support SMEs to develop new business models
  • Prolong life of landfill sites in Scotland

  • Boost social enterprise by encouraging re-use schemes
  • Support new markets for waste resources
