In Scotland, businesses are required by law to separate their waste glass, metal, plastic, cardboard and paper for collection and recycling. From 1 January 2016, businesses producing more than 5kg food waste each week must also segregate this. Failure to comply with this legislation can incur fines of up to £10,000 – clearly an unwelcome yet avoidable cost for any business.
Our service is used by architects and accountants, charities and clubs, and many others. We provide one-off, weekly, fortnightly or monthly collections. We also offer free advice about recycling. This helps change employee attitudes and behaviours – reducing consumer waste and enhancing environmental impact.
As a social enterprise, Yooz is the socially responsible and cheaper alternative to larger waste collection companies. All profits are reinvested in our charity Active4All.
Our experienced and knowledgeable staff will work with you to identify the best approach to meet your recycling needs. Please contact us for more information.
Are you complying with your legal duty to separate materials for recycling?
“Here at Anderson Bell Christie we are committed to recycling, and a big part of this is working with Yooz to uplift all of our recyclable items. We have been using their collection services for 12 years and they have continued to be very helpful, friendly and always reliable. We are very supportive of small, local businesses like Yooz and we would recommend their services very highly.”
