Gen­eral waste in re­cy­cle bins

Argyllshire Advertiser - - YOUR VIEWS -

Sir, I was very an­gry to hear from lo­cal res­i­dents in Port­na­haven that their re­cy­cling bins have been used by nu­mer­ous mo­torhomes for dis­pos­ing of gen­eral waste, in­clud­ing food waste.

I have vis­ited the re­cy­cling bins site in Port­na­haven and spo­ken to con­stituents in per­son about this and I can con­firm that un­for­tu­nately Port­na­haven’s re­cy­cling bins are full of gen­eral waste.

This is as un­ac­cept­able as it is dis­re­spect­ful. I have con­tacted the ap­pro­pri­ate depart­ment with the coun­cil and asked for an in­ves­ti­ga­tion to be done. I also asked for some ad­di­tional sig­nage for the bins area.

I made it very clear that my con­stituents should not lose their re­cy­cling fa­cil­i­ties as a re­sult of their bins be­ing misused by some­one else.

I will con­tinue to mon­i­tor this sit­u­a­tion and pro­vide an up­date as soon as I have more in­for­ma­tion. Alas­tair Red­man, Isle of Is­lay.
