Communities in Scotland will be able to bid for a share of up to £500,000 to reduce single-use plastics.

The new ‘Action on Plastic Zero Waste Towns’ initiative will provide community groups with funding to deliver actions which would benefit their environment and local economy. This may include the introduction of water bottle refill facilities, switching all single-use items in the community to the same material to make recycling easier or replacing single-use takeaway containers with reusable systems.
