All of Dundee City Council’s waste management sites have been rated as excellent by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa), the neighbourhood services committee will hear on Monday.
The five sites are Baldovie Transfer Station, Baldovie and Riverside recycling centres, Riverside Landfill and Composting and Marchbanks Reclamation Centre.
Sepa made the assessment based on environmental limit conditions, relating to emission limits and odour, and environmental management conditions.
Neighbourhood services convener Councillor Kevin Cordell said: “This is fantastic news. I’m pleased to see that the final assessment of environmental performance for 2016 has come back as excellent.
“The staff here work really hard to ensure conditions are met and I am delighted for them to see their hard work pay off.”
Meanwhile, the committee will hear that new and innovative waste bins which could revolutionise the way waste is collected are to be trialled across Dundee.
The smart litter bins are fitted with sensors to alert waste services only when they are full and ready to be emptied.
Solar power will be used to compact the waste, improving efficiency and helping to reduce carbon emissions and vehicle costs.
The proposals are being jointly funded by the city council and a European Regional Development Fund programme.
