Waste Aware Lothian & Borders

Lothian & Borders: Campaigns

SWAG has carried out surveys in the 5 Local Authority areas of the Lothian & Borders Waste Strategy Area. This was done in order to determine public attitudes and behaviour towards waste. Based on this, we are developing campaigns to engage members of the public in more sustainable waste managment.

West Lothian Campaigns:
SWAG is currently campaigning to engage residents of West Lothian in a Kerbside Recycling Collection scheme. The scheme has now expanded to cover Armadale and West Calder.  To read about the launch of this new roll out, which took place at Eden Recycling in Broxburn on Tuesday 24th August 2004, please click here.

Edinburgh Campaigns:
SWAG is currently campaigning to encourage residents of Edinburgh to recycle their paper via recycling centres and points and at the kerbside. Edinburgh residents spotted recycling their paper could win Scotmid vouchers. For further details, please click here.

At the present time, SWAG is currently in discussion with East Lothian Council, Midlothian Council and Scottish Borders Council. We hope that we will soon be able to run campaigns in partnership with these Local Authorities.

David Gunn and Vicky Armour are the Campaign Officers responsible for the Lothian & Borders Waste Strategy Area.
