Councillor Paul Ferretti, Convener of Place, Neighbourhood and Corporate Assets, said, "A Circular Economy aims to eliminate waste - which is a major cause of global climate and environmental crises. Materials are kept in use or repurposed for as long as possible - shifting from a disposable culture, in which everything is designed to be thrown away after use.

"Waste is avoided when everything is made and designed to last for multiple uses - and to be reused/recycled when no longer needed.

"It's better for the environment and the economy - reducing costs, driving innovation and strengthening support links between businesses, organisations and communities."
