Zero Waste Target Announced for Scottish Coca-cola Plant

Coca-Cola’s Scottish factory announced plans to completely stop sending waste to landfill by the end of 2011 – another significant step towards making Scotland a zero waste society. The plant in East Kilbride, whose products include Coca-Cola, Fanta, Dr Pepper and Sprite, will improve its recycling facilities and work with an external waste contractor to reach the target. The announcement comes as new SEPA figures reveal that Scotland has exceeded its European landfill target 18 months early, with 1.29 million tonnes of waste being sent to landfill; the end of 2010 target of 1.32 million tonnes has already been met..
