Preventing Household Waste in Scotland: A Consultation Paper: January 2006, Paper 2006/1


7. Conclusion

Other action

7.1 There may be other action consultees consider could be undertaken to prevent waste.

Question 42: Are consultees aware of any other action which could be undertaken to prevent waste? If so, what?

Measuring success

7.2 Our aim is to stop the growth in municipal waste by 2010. SEPA produces quarterly and annual data returns on waste and Audit Scotland produces annual returns, as part of their Environmental and Regulatory Services Performance Indicators. We will monitor the trends shown in these returns, to measure our success. SEPA are also currently working on a set of indicators on waste prevention.
