5 Fife Council Zero Waste Strategy and The Drivers for Change Further development of recycling infrastructure to: – Maximise recovery of food waste for treatment and energy recovery – Improve capture rates for paper, plastics, glass, cans and other recyclates – Minimise risk of Landfill Allowance Scheme penalty – Reduce CO 2 emissions – Meet public requirements What Works In Behaviour Change ? 28th June 2010
