In­sight of­fered into re­cy­cling

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

MEM­BERS of the pub­lic are to be given an in­sight into re­cy­cling fa­cil­i­ties in Perth and Kin­ross in a bid to re­duce waste.

The coun­cil’s waste ser­vices will be hold­ing a num­ber of events with re­cy­cling-themed ac­tiv­i­ties un­til Oc­to­ber 1.

The aim of the “Be a Waste War­rior” cam­paign is to en­cour­age house­hold­ers to re­cy­cle more ma­te­ri­als, more of­ten, by rais­ing aware­ness of the ben­e­fits and pro­mot­ing easy ways to take part.

Ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude tours of Fri­ar­ton Re­cy­cling Cen­tre and Earn­side En­ergy’s fa­cil­ity in Glen­farg on Doors Open Day to­mor­row.

There will be a waste aware­ness talk and games at Bridge of Earn Beaver Scouts on Septem­ber 26 and in­for­ma­tion stands in Perth and Blair­gowrie.

Coun­cil­lor Colin Ste­wart, con­vener of the lo­cal au­thor­ity’s en­vi­ron­ment, en­ter­prise and in­fra­struc­ture com­mit­tee, said: “If we all re­cy­cled just one more drinks can each week, Scot­tish coun­cils would save £3 mil­lion a year.”
