Opposition Comment on Changes to Shire Waste & Recycling Plans

>> 16 May 2019

Commenting following changes to the kerbside collection of recycling and waste which were agreed at today’s meeting of Aberdeenshire Council’s Infrastructure Services Committee, Councillor Stephen Smith (SNP – Peterhead South & Cruden) said:

“While the withdrawal of the funding offer from Zero Waste Scotland was disappointing, residents will be breathing a sigh of relief that the rethink this prompted hasn’t been combined with the reduction in bin size that was planned originally.

“We need to take residents with us as we improve recycling rates. This is a pragmatic way forward which allows households to make the necessary changes at a more steady pace.

“The Scottish Government’s planned deposit return scheme will have a very positive impact. We now have the chance to design an alternative scheme which better fits around that initiative while allowing for a wider range of recyclable materials to be collected locally.”
