Circular Economy: Proposal for Legislation Consultation

20 November 2019 to 19 December 2019


The Scottish Government seeks views on the proposals for legislation to develop Scotland's circular economy.

The proposals in the consultation form part of wider plans for a step-change in our approach to reducing, reusing and recycling materials, as part of our transition to net zero emissions. There are two parts to the consultation: proposals for a circular economy bill, including measures to charge for items such as single-use disposable beverage cups; and proposals for two secondary regulations, relating to public bodies’ procurement strategies and to increasing the minimum single-use carrier bag charge from 5p to 10p.
