ZWS provide dedicated waste hub  for Scotland’s recyclers and waste management operations during COVID-19 with support and advice from the Scottish and UK Governments, Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and Health Protection Scotland. The resources provide information and signpost to the most up-to-date guidance on a range of topics, including support for businesses, environmental regulations, temporary regulatory positions and health and safety.

The campaign reinforces the legal responsibility to recycle and manage waste properly. There is also a warning to those who are seeking to use the opportunity of disruption to services to their criminal advantage, and a plea to businesses to help SEPA to tackle unscrupulous companies and individuals by reporting suspicious behaviour and making sure they only deal with legitimate waste companies.
