To ask the Scottish Government what advice it is giving to farmers regarding how best to store plastic waste.
Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 6 February 2019
Advice and a list of plastic waste service providers is also available on the Zero Waste Scotland website. (see https://www.zerowastescotland.org.uk/resource-management/farm-plastic-recycling).
SEPA has provided clear guidance to farmers to help them decide how best to store and dispose of their plastic waste (see https://www.sepa.org.uk/regulations/waste/agricultural-waste/burning-on-farm-waste/#rural ) and there are also local SEPA offices that can provide more direct assistance.
