The development of markets for recycled goods is a key objective of our National Waste Plan. The Executive supports two market development initiatives - the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) and Recycling Market Development (REMADE) Scotland to help achieve this objective.

WRAP operates on a UK-wide level to create stable and efficient markets for recycled materials and products through its five material programmes and work on standards, procurement and financial mechanisms. REMADE Scotland aims to stimulate, develop and strengthen recyclate material markets in Scotland.
