Re­cy­cling re­stric­tions be­ing re­laxed right across area

- Ecology · Buckie

Re­stric­tions on the op­er­a­tion of re­cy­cling cen­tres across Mo­ray are be­ing re­laxed.

A book­ing sys­tem will re­main in place, but small vans and trail­ers no larger than six feet will be now be al­lowed ac­cess to the El­gin, Buckie, For­res and Keith sites.

Res­i­dents can also dis­pose of soil, rub­ble, bulky waste, met­als and wood at all of the area’s re­cy­cling cen­tres.

Non-re­cy­clable waste which would nor­mally go in a green bin – such as gar­den waste, card­board and small elec­tri­cal and elec­tronic de­vices – con­tin­ues to be ac­cepted at all re­cy­cling cen­tres.

Strict so­cial dis­tanc­ing will re­main in place, how­ever, and no as­sis­tance can be of­fered by re­cy­cling cen­tre staff to un­load ve­hi­cles or dis­pose of waste.

A max­i­mum of three ve­hi­cles at any one time will be al­lowed ac­cess to sites at Chanonry in El­gin and Water­ford in For­res.

At Bal­loch Road in Keith and Gol­lachy in Buckie, that num­ber is re­stricted fur­ther to two ve­hi­cles at any one time.

A Mo­ray Coun­cil spokesman said: “There will be no change to the cur­rent re­stric­tion of a max­i­mum of two peo­ple per­mit­ted to leave the ve­hi­cle.”
