When providing this information please confirm the date of issue and how the dissemination to staff who maybe performing such tasks is confirmed.

Further, please provide a copy of the checking process employed to monitor that all such plastic materials have been retrieved and accounted for once their use is finalised.

Dear Ms Hardy,

I refer to your request for information and can confirm that, although the Council has been considering how to reduce its use of plastics, for example in its canteens, we do not have any guidance fitting the description that you've given.

I hope that this is to your satisfaction.

Under Section 20 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, you have the right to request that the Highland Council reviews any aspect of how it has dealt with your request. This requirement for review should be put in writing to the Freedom of Information Officer, Chief Executive’s Office, Glenurquhart Road, Inverness IV3 5NX, within 40 working days of receipt of this letter. The request should include details of the information requested and the aspects of the Highland Council’s response which you are not satisfied with.

If you are subsequently dissatisfied with the outcome of the Council's review, you have the right to appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner under Section 47 of the Act, within six months of receiving the Council's review response.

Further guidance on information request reviews and right to appeal can be found on the Scottish Information Commissioner website at www.itspublicknowledge.info .

Yours sincerely,

Miles Watters
