Highland Council seem to be giving us mixed messages with regard recycling. Last week a colour brochure came through the door telling us how well we were doing, this week a sticker has been put on my wheelie bin reminding me to recycle!
Despite the splendid facilities for recycling at Park Quarry, this facility remains only of use to those who have their own transport to drive there and don’t mind footing the carbon cost. At least the old facility at Station Park didn’t mean a car journey out of town in order to recycle.
The brown and blue recycle bins may provide a part solution but it easy to see from a few purchases at a supermarket that many items cannot be recycled without a trip to Park Quarry, namely cardboard and plastic bottles. Could a facility to recycle these items not be provided beside the Somerfield bottle banks?
Meanwhile I will await the next recycling message from Highland Council
