What exactly is the circular economy (CE) and how does it work? Essentially its about reducing and ultimately eliminating the waste that our society produces from what we consume. It’s the opposite to the current predominantly ‘linear’ economy, which operates on a ‘take-make-dispose’ basis. The CE by contrast seeks to avoid wasting anything by finding some sort of use for stuff. If something can’t be used, it should be recycled. Barry Dalgleish provides the second of our series looking at economic alternatives for Glasgow
