GREENS’ CO-LEADER TOURS GOLSPIE RECYCLING PROJECT

Mr Harper today visited the GREAN project in Golspie to attend the AGM and celebrate the latest expansion of their services. GREAN (Golspie Recycling and Environmental Action Network) provides a kerbside recycling service for 625 households in Golspie – but that service will now extend to a total of 3000 households in South, East and Central Sutherland.

Robin Harper MSP said, “Every small town in Scotland should have a recycling initiative like GREAN. Local authorities must wake up to the huge possibilities of small scale community recycling, and the contribution that it could make to us becoming a zero waste society. Greens would like to see all councils in Scotland follow this example. If the Scottish Executive wants examples of how doing a little can change a lot they need look no further than Golspie and GREAN for their inspiration.”

GREAN is contracted to the Highland Council through the strategic waste fund.
