Plastics recycling

ANGUS Council is taking part in Scotland’s first Recycle Week, which runs until June 26, in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland.

It has the theme of recycling both within and away from home.

And during the week, the council is launching its new plastic food container recycling bins as part of any ongoing commitment to recycle more materials and reduce the amount going to landfill.

Plastic food containers, including clean yoghurt pots, margarine tubs and ready meal trays can now be recycled at all seven recycling centres in the county.

Angus Council waste management spokesperson Councillor Jim Millar said: “Recycle Week is all about how making even the smallest changes at home and when out and about during our daily lives will have a cumulative effect, ultimately helping our local environments and enabling Scotland to move towards becoming a zero waste society.

“Recycling more is something that most of us can easily do. Although most people are already making efforts to recycle, there is wide variety of materials suitable for recycling, and the amount of rubbish we send to landfill could definitely still be reduced.”
