Highland Council to seek food waste collection funding

Highland Council looks set to apply for £500,000 of funding to help it cover the cost of food waste collections in Inverness.

The local authority will be required by law to have the collections for households and businesses in place before 1 January 2016.

About 28,000 households in Inverness, Culloden, Smithton, Balloch and Milton of Leys will be involved.

They will be given a small bin to collect waste food.

Highland councillors will be asked Thursday to approve an application to the Scottish government's Zero Waste Scotland fund to help it roll out the new collection.
