Residents in Aberdeenshire have two weeks left to give their views on proposed changes to the area’s recycling and waste services, designed to ensure we all treat materials as a resource.

So far more than 1,300 people have taken part in a major consultation, voicing their opinion on efforts to push up the area’s recycling rate and reduce the volume of material sent to landfill.

A package of changes is being proposed, including reducing the size of non-recyclable bins, less frequent collections, increasing each household’s recycling capacity and improving the network of Household Waste Recycling Centres.

Two options to change kerbside waste collections are proposed as part of the revamped collection system and people are encouraged to share their views with the council on this.

Responses will feed into a new waste strategy being developed, aimed at ensuring the area maximises the environmental, local and financial benefits from the waste it produces as a community.

Aberdeenshire’s current recycling rate is only 43.5%, but services currently available to residents should allow a recycling rate of 70%.

Over half of the materials put into local non-recyclable waste bins are actually recyclable through existing services – equating to around 30,000 tonnes of recyclable materials being binned at a cost of £3.5million a year.

Sending waste to landfill costs twice as much as recycling, so not only does maximising the value of a material benefit the environment, it also frees up money for other council services.
