Edinburgh Airport to benefit from Zero Waste investment

Posted on:

Edinburgh Airport is one of the places set to benefit from a high-flying recycling project in Scotland.

Thousands of recycling bins are to be installed in public places north of the border following an £850,000 investment from government body Zero Waste Scotland, and other places to benefit will include Nevis Range Mountain Resort, Our Dynamic Earth, Overgate Shopping Centre in Dundee and the University of Strathclyde.

The aim is to make it more convenient for people to recycle a whole range of materials such as newspapers, plastic bottles and aluminium drink cans while visiting public places. Overall there will be 2,700 new recycling bins over 250 sites.

More than 32 projects have received money from the Recycle on the Go Capital Support Fund, covering a range of locations such as public transport sites, tourist attractions, higher education institutions, shopping centres and NHS facilities.

Scottish cabinet secretary for the environment, Richard Lochhead, said:

“Recycling is vital to the economic and environmental future of Scotland so we must make it as easy as possible for people. This funding is just one example of our commitment to make the most of Scotland’s valuable resources, and the bins will also contribute to our work to crack down on litter.”
