Due to the diverse nature of Scotland’s landscape and population, it has been divided into eleven Waste Strategy Areas. As part of the National Waste Strategy, each Waste Strategy Area has produced an Area Waste Plan. The Area Waste Plan is the result of a consultation process and consideration of the most sustainable waste management options for the local area.

The Area Waste Plan sets out the Best Practicable Environmental Option (BPEO) for the management of the area’s municipal solid waste. It outlines the way in which the Waste Strategy Area plans to deal with its waste in order to meet the targets set out in the EU Landfill Directive and to develop more sustainable methods of waste management. The Scottish Executive has allocated over £350 million to the Strategic Waste Fund to help local authorities develop the infrastructure needed to implement these plans.

Each Waste Strategy Area also produces an Annual Progress Report on the implementation of the local Area Waste Plan.
