Western Isles: Campaigns

SWAG has carried out surveys in the Western Isles 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.

Public Attitudes to Waste in the Western Isles

In November, Alastair Ferguson and Sharon MacKinnon joined Marina Fraser in the Waste Aware Western Isles team. The team are developing and implementing the Waste Aware campaign in the Western Isles in partnership with SWAG. The team are based at Bennadrove, near Stornoway, where the local Recycling Facility is located. From here, the team organise and plan a range of waste awareness and community events.

Zero Waste

A pilot Kerbside Recycling campaign is planned for the Western Isles in early 2005. Following the pilot, the Kerbside Recycling collection will be introduced to a larger number of households. There are plans to increase the number of Recycling Points, introduce a green waste Kerbside Recycling collection and target businesses with specific requirements.

You can contact the Waste Aware Western Isles team via the Waste Aware Western Isles Helpline on: 01851 709900 or e-mail at: wasteaware@cne-siar.gov.uk.

David Gunn is the SWAG Campaign Officer responsible for the Western Isles Waste Strategy Area.
