Following on from the successful waste minimisation workshops held on the 15 June at The Lighthouse, Glasgow City Council will be hosting a further two workshops, in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland’s Resource Efficient Scotland (RES) Programme. The workshops will assist businesses in meeting the new requirements of Glasgow City Council’s City Centre Commercial Waste Project and could help make some savings on trade waste.

A range of attending city centre businesses attended the previous workshops – from retail to hospitality – with staff from the RES programme on hand after the workshop who were able to discuss individual requests for support from some of the attendees.

Feedback from the workshop was very positive and all attendees were able to sign up for a waste reduction pack and other useful materials. Presentations from Zero Waste Scotland explained the range of help available, from one-to-one support, to staff engagement toolkits, to access to loans and grant finance.

The next workshop* will be held on the 27 June 2017 at the Mackintosh Unit in St Enoch Centre (1st floor next to Debenhams). You can register to attend on the link below.
