                      Mo’s is benefiting from nearly £3,000 of yearly savings having implemented new ways of handing its recycling in line with the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012 which came into effect from 1 January 2014. Prior to starting a waste management programme, Mo’s Convenience Store used to dispose of three 1,200 litre bins a week, most of which was sent to a landfill site. Through a comprehensive programme of waste reduction projects the business has managed to reduce this to just one bin a week, effectively cutting its monthly waste pick-up bill from £320 to £82 per month; an annual saving of £2856. As well as separating all cardboard and plastics and taking them to the local cash and carry for recycling, Mo’s has also devised ways of ensuring its food waste is kept to a bare minimum. A bake off oven on site ensures fresh their bread is fresh. It is price-reduced after one day on the shelf and by the second day, remaining bread is either given away for free or used to make pizza-style flat bread. Staff are encouraged to be forward-thinking about sustainability and rewarded for their efforts and ideas. Other energy efficiency measures include reducing water by 20% and installing LED lighting and timers in the fridges. Since the new regulations came into being, all businesses in Scotland are now legally required to separate key recyclable materials including; paper and card, plastic, metals and glass for collection.
