Targets and progress

Targets and progress: how are we doing?

Our aim is to recycle and divert from landfill as much waste as possible. To achieve this aim we have created a Resource Strategy & Action Plan. This outlines the strategic direction for waste and resource management within the Council’s control for the 10 years from 2018. 

The following table shows the main targets we follow as set by the Scottish Government.

Target Percentage Target date
Recycling & composting (household waste) 60% 2020
Waste reduction (against 2011) 15% 2025
Waste landfilled 5% 2025
Recycling & composting (all waste) 70% 2025
