Council celebrates double recycling wins
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.’
