Perth, Leith and Edinburgh – the three Scottish cities have earned “Zero Waste Town” status, furthering bolstering the country’s reputation as a champion of environmental sustainability and circular economy.

As per Scotland’s Zero Waste Plan, launched in 2010, the country sees all its waste as a valuable resource, which instead of being dumped in landfills, is sorted, recycled and reused while only a trace is disposed of, notes Green Matters.  

The three cities, which now join Dunbar and the Isle of Bute as Zero Waste Towns, will shell out nearly £900,000 to introduce new waste-reducing, resource-efficiency, and consumer-engagement initiatives, writes Sustainable Brands.
