General waste in recycle bins
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.
