Viridor Signs Scottish Resource Sector Commitment

05-11-13(5)picViridor has joined a Scottish Government-backed initiative to drive best practice in business waste collections and to help deliver the country’s zero waste targets.

The  Scottish Resource Sector Commitment, developed by Zero Waste Scotland in collaboration with the resource management industry and small business representatives, is backed by key trade bodies including CIWM, Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Scotland, Scottish Environmental Services Association (SESA), Community Resources Network Scotland (CRNS), and the Resource Association.

By signing the Scottish Resource Sector Commitment, Viridor has agreed to retain a focus on offering high quality recycling services, advice on preventing waste and using resources efficiently, providing user-friendly contracts and charging structures, and enabling customers to give feedback.

Iain Gulland, Zero Waste Scotland – “I’m delighted to see Viridor signing up to this commitment. The new Waste (Scotland) Regulations which come into play next year are driving a change in the way Scotland manages its resources, and this commitment will play an important part in working towards that change”

Viridor’s Scottish Regional Director, Colin Paterson said: “At Viridor we sift, sort and segregate waste to transform it into valuable commodities; whether that’s quality materials that can be recycled into new products, or energy to power Scotland’s economy.

“Our £100m Scottish network of recycling-led waste infrastructure is today helping customers meet the zero waste challenge and our current £450m investment in next generation technology will transform that policy into practice.

“Focused on supporting Scotland: from councils and corporates to corner shops, we’re delighted to back Zero Waste Scotland’s Resource Sector Commitment, working together to get waste sorted.”

Iain Gulland, director, Zero Waste Scotland said: “I’m delighted to see Viridor signing up to this commitment. The new Waste (Scotland) Regulations which come into play next year are driving a change in the way Scotland manages its resources, and this commitment will play an important part in working towards that change.”
