Coun­cil cel­e­brates dou­ble re­cy­cling wins

The Oban Times - - News -

ARGYLL and Bute Coun­cil has won two UK awards for re­cy­cling.

It has scooped gold in two cat­e­gories, beat­ing coun­cils from across Bri­tain.

In one month, the coun­cil col­lected the most waste elec­tri­cal and elec­tronic equip­ment (WEEE) per head of pop­u­la­tion.

And its com­mu­nity re­cy­cling cen­tre in Oban has been named as the most im­proved mon­thon-month WEEE col­lec­tor.

Jim Smith, the coun­cil’s head of road and amenity ser­vices, said: ‘ We are de­lighted that Argyll and Bute is lead­ing the way in re­cy­cling elec­tric and elec­tronic waste.

‘Thank you to lo­cal res­i­dents and busi­nesses for play­ing their part in help­ing to grow re­cy­cling rates across the area.

‘This dou­ble gold award shows just how com­mit­ted the coun­cil is to re­cy­cling, and how the peo­ple of Argyll and Bute are sup­port­ing this.’
