A new green energy deal is set to see recycled rubbish used to heat hundreds of homes in Glasgow.
The Scotsman reports how the city's council and renewable energy and waste company Viridor have agreed on plans for a new recycling plant in Polmadie.
Around 200,000 tonnes of waste would be burnt to generate heat and power for social housing at the incinerator.
Council leader Gordon Matheson said: "This project will heat homes and power public buildings, create skilled jobs and support apprenticeships."
He added that the initiative provides Glasgow with the opportunity to secure a "cleaner, more affordable" future that will see the city's waste put to good use.
The plant is one of six renewable energy centres currently under construction or planned by Viridor, which operates 20 material recycling facilities, 22 energy from waste sites and 22 landfills in the UK.
It also offers waste collection and compositing services, as well as skip and bin hire.
