SUCCESS OF CAITHNESS KERBSIDER COLLECTIONS
number of households across the Highlands able to recycle at home has
reached 48,000 as the result of the expansion of kerbside collections.
This has enabled The Highland Council to almost double its recycling
rate. Initial results show 550 tonnes of paper, 20 tonnes of cans
and 2140 tonnes of green waste have being collected across the
Highlands since the new door-step collection schemes started this
year. The Kerbside Recycling collection started in Caithness on
the 11th April and since then over 650 tonnes of material has been
collected. After a slow start, the amount of garden waste collected
each month is now around 100 tonnes but this figure is increasing. This
waste is taken to Seater Landfill site where it is shredded on site and
composted into a soil conditioner.
Waste Aware Scotland
COUNCIL CONVERTS CANS INTO TREES
Every person in the Highlands is being challenged to get into the
recycling habit by supporting a new campaign to recycle more aluminium
cans. The Highland Council and the UK Aluminium Packaging Recycling
Organisation (Alupro) are challenging everybody to join in the “Get
Recycling” campaign and to recycle more aluminium. In return The Highland
Council promises to plant a tree for each tonne of aluminium cans recycled
during the next twelve months. The Highland Council will collect the
cans, separate the aluminium from the steel and bale it. This is then sold
to Alloa Community Enterprise and goes from there to Alcan Recycling in
Warrington where it is smelted and made into ingots that are then sold on
to mills who convert it to sheeting and then into cans.
National charity working with community
groups, local authorities and industry to educate, inform and raise
awareness on waste reduction, reuse and recycling.
