NO WASTE IN TIME AS DUNDEE INVESTS RECYCLING CASH

City Council Environmental Services and Sustainability Convener Julie Sturrock is to help deliver new garden waste bins in the city, as the Local Authority moves to make the first investment from a £26million award from the Scottish Executive’s Strategic Waste Fund.

The City Council is expanding the hugely successful ‘brown bin’ scheme for garden waste recycling to a further 17,000 properties in the city between now and April next year.

Councillor Sturrock will be on hand to see some of the new bins being delivered to households in the city. The new collections will start next month.

She said: “This is a significant expansion of the hugely successful scheme that we have been running in Dundee for several years now. This will see new collection routes being set up across the city and will give people on existing routes the chance to get a brown bin if they don’t already have them.

“We have been awarded a significant amount of funding from the Scottish Executive and we are absolutely committed to improving Dundee’s already impressive recycling record.”

Councillor Sturrock added: “There are a number of strategies that we are looking to pursue: such as plastic, glass and aluminium kerbside collections. The people of Dundee have supported the council’s recycling efforts wholeheartedly in the past, and I am sure that they will take enthusiastically to these new projects.”
