The Shrub has been awarded funding from Zero Waste Scotland to test out some really exciting ideas that could transform our community and help us achieve our vision of a world without waste.
If the testing of our ideas is successful, we could receive £100,000 per year for the next three years. That funding will allow us to make South Central Edinburgh into a “Zero Waste Town” where waste is a valuable resource and is used and reused in innovative ways to reduce how much is landfilled.
To do this, we need your help! We want to make sure our ideas for a Zero Waste Town meet the needs of the local community… that’s where our survey and community gathering comes in!
You can share your waste habits and views with us by participating in our quick Zero Waste Town Survey. The data gathered will be invaluable in helping us develop a vision for the next three years and beyond.
We’re also inviting people from across the local community to come together in a big gathering on Wednesday 29th March to share this vision and research findings, and all work together to create a zero waste town.
