Recycling services expanded thanks to £54,500

Thanks to an award from the Scottish Executive, residents of South Lanarkshire Council will benefit from an expanded household waste recycling service.  The council are will receive £54,477 from the Strategic Waste Fund to ensure that it meets recycling and landfill diversion targets until 2020.
This grant follows an interim payment of £8.2 million last year, which saw new facilities designed to reduce the amounts of waste sent to landfill.

The expansion of the recycling service, made possible by the extra funding, will create 53 full-time and temporary posts.  Furthermore, the council's recycling service will extend to include a glass collection service.
