Thanks to funding from CCF and support from Argyll and Bute Council, we have placed recycling bins throughout the island next to general waste bins. This has meant that we have prevented recyclable materials that was previously going to land fill to be collected for recycling instead. These on the go bins are not meant for household recycling but aim to capture items such as drinks cans and bottles which visitors would have put in general bins if there was no alternative. This has proved to be very successful. So far our bins have prevented 1442Kg from landfill. These have been collecting recyclate even after funding ending in April 2020.
We provide recycling bins at local events to prevent recyclable materials from going into general bins where they end up in landfill. Please contact us to arrange recycling bins at your event.
