Coun­cil happy to re­cy­cle

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

House­holds across South La­nark­shire will find it eas­ier to re­cy­cle – thanks to the coun­cil com­mit­ting to the Scot­tish House­hold Re­cy­cling Char­ter.

That’s ac­cord­ing to the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment, who say the coun­try has taken a sig­nif­i­cant step to­ward hav­ing one con­sis­tent re­cy­cling sys­tem af­ter half of the coun­cils signed up to the vol­un­tary re­cy­cling char­ter.

En­vi­ron­ment sec­re­tary Roseanna Cun­ning­ham is prais­ing the 16 lo­cal au­thor­i­ties who have al­ready signed up to the sys­tem, which is de­signed to sim­plify re­cy­cling across the coun­try, mak­ing it eas­ier for peo­ple to sort waste and im­prove the qual­ity of the re­cy­cling.

Ms Cun­ning­ham said: “We want Scot­land to make the most of its re­sources, and as more coun­cils make this com­mit­ment, we should see Scot­tish house­hold­ers re­cy­cling more.”
