Zero Waste Town

Zero Waste Town

In 2014 Dunbar and District competed to become Scotland’s first Zero Waste Town, under a new Zero Waste Scotland initiative to support community focused projects that aim to promote the 3 Rs, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

The Zero Waste Town initiative aims to recognise collective efforts in communities to reduce waste and maximise re-use and recycling, supporting the Scottish Government’s Zero Waste Plan.

Zero Waste Dunbar is a broad ranging programme that will deliver a series of projects that reduce waste and increase the benefits of reuse and recycling for the local community.

The projects will include community engagement activities, support to local businesses, educational projects and the development of local infrastructure to support reuse and recycling.
