Recycling

Beautiful Scottish scenery

At Scotty Brand, we look after the environment during the production of our food and that continues with our packaging.  Below you can see which items can be recycled now and those for which we are trying to find recyclable solutions.

The categories are the British Retail Consortium’s definitions:-

  • “Widely recycled” means that 65% or more of UK local authorities have facilities to recycle this material.
  • “Check local recycling” means between 15% and 65% can accept it.
  • “Not currently recycled” means under 15% can accept it.

Remember that the items which can be accepted are changing all the time, so it’s still worth checking even for something in the “Not currently recycled” category.
