Householders will now be able to take their cans, car batteries, cardboard, electrical appliances, engine oil, garden waste, glass bottles & jars, paper, rubble and soil, scrap metal, textiles, tyres, white goods and wood to the Recycling Centre. A special container will also be available for people to donate unwanted furniture and household goods to Homeaid Caithness for reuse.
Councillor John Green said: "I am delighted that householders in and around Thurso now have a purpose-built facility to take their recycling waste to. People can bring along a wide range of items including cans, textiles, scrap metal garden waste, glass, cardboard and paper and I am sure it will be very well used."
Councillor Bill Fulton said: "Earlier in
the year a new recycling centre in Wick opened so now there are two
excellent recycling facilities in
"Both Centres now allow everyone living near them to be more diligent about how they dispose of their waste in order to cut down on the amount going to landfill sites."
Two new jobs have been created and during the winter months the Recycling Centre will be open from 11am - 4pm seven days a week.
