Zero Waste Perth

What was Zero Waste Perth?

Zero Waste Perth was a collaboration between Beautiful Perth, Perth & Kinross Council and Perth College University of Highlands and Islands.

Funded by Zero Waste Scotland’s Zero Waste Towns initiative, Perth was one of three Zero Waste Towns to receive a share of £900k to take forward projects designed to prevent food waste, encourage reuse and repair, recycling promotion, improve resource efficiency and promote local circular economy opportunities.

From November 2017 to March 2020 a diverse programme of activities were delivered throughout Perth including multiple upcycling workshops, litter picks, training sessions and cooking classes all designed to embed skills within the Perth community and leave behind a legacy of individuals and businesses reducing waste in their personal and professional lives.

The funded period for project has now finished but Zero Waste Perth continues through the work of Beautiful Perth and the many partners engaged with throughout the funded term.
