The number of households across the Highlands able to recycle at home has reached 48,000 as the result of the expansion of kerbside collections. This has enabled The Highland Council to almost double its recycling rate.  Initial results show 550 tonnes of paper, 20 tonnes of cans and 2140 tonnes of green waste have being collected across the Highlands since the new door-step collection schemes started this year.  The Kerbside Recycling collection started in Caithness on the 11th April and since then over 650 tonnes of material has been collected. After a slow start, the amount of garden waste collected each month is now around 100 tonnes but this figure is increasing. This waste is taken to Seater Landfill site where it is shredded on site and composted into a soil conditioner.

Waste Aware Scotland

Every person in the Highlands is being challenged to get into the recycling habit by supporting a new campaign to recycle more aluminium cans.  The Highland Council and the UK Aluminium Packaging Recycling Organisation (Alupro) are challenging everybody to join in the “Get Recycling” campaign and to recycle more aluminium. In return The Highland Council promises to plant a tree for each tonne of aluminium cans recycled during the next twelve months.  The Highland Council will collect the cans, separate the aluminium from the steel and bale it. This is then sold to Alloa Community Enterprise and goes from there to Alcan Recycling in Warrington where it is smelted and made into ingots that are then sold on to mills who convert it to sheeting and then into cans.
