New Resource: Waste Management for Cultural Organisations

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

A new guide, “Creative Carbon Scotland’s Guide to Tackling Waste,” is available in our resources section that addresses strategies of waste management for cultural organisations. The report includes advice that adheres to the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012, which came into action in January 2014.

The guide provides advice on a variety of topics, including:

  • How to incorporate the Waste Hierarchy into your organisation
  • What the Scottish Government means by ‘high-quality’ recycling
  • The Reasonable Excuse, and what qualifies an exemption from the regulations
  • The responsibilities of your waste contractor and questions to ask to ensure your waste is treated properly
  • Key information on Waste Transfer Notes

To download the full report, please visit the resource page here.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
