A new director for Scotland has been appointed by the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP).
Iain Gulland is currently network director of the Community Recycling Network for Scotland but will join WRAP on June 23. His appointment follows the departure of Frank Mulgrew who was appointed in January this year but has now left for personal reasons.
Gulland will be based in WRAPs new Scottish office in Edinburgh and his position will be funded by the Scottish Government. He will be responsible for delivering WRAPs first business plan for Scotland as well as recycling and waste reduction targets.
Gulland said: WRAP has an outstanding reputation in the waste and resources arena. I am excited about joining the team and helping to deliver Scotlands very ambitious waste reduction and recycling targets.
"Scotland has some very specific challenges in delivering on these targets particularly when we consider resource use throughout the supply chain. But these challenges offer some fantastic opportunities for home grown solutions which will bring real economic benefits to Scotland.
