New Recycling Waste Collection Sees 30% Decrease In Rubbish Sent To Landfill
At Skip Hire UK, we already know the amazing benefits that a professional waste collection service can provide. This doesn’t mean just for customers, but for the environment too. Before you go rushing to call us for mini skip hire, or another of our other amazing skip sizes, take a peek below to see how a scheme in Edinburgh is helping Scotland reach its environmental targets and the benefits of continued recycling.
Landfill Waste Is Reduced Thanks To Edinburgh Waste Collection Scheme
Scotland is one nation that seems to be on the ball when it comes to recycling all sorts of household and commercial waste. In fact, ensuring that as much waste gets recycled as possible is a top priority for environmental groups and local authorities north of the border.
Homes that have used a new, innovative recycling collection scheme have seen some great reductions in the amount of household waste they generate per week. Figures suggest that Edinburgh households involved in the scheme have cut waste from 7kg down to 5kg. Recycling itself has been increased 50%! This demonstrates how great having someone take care of your rubbish is; whether its mini skip hire from our experts getting rid of garden waste or letting a council take care of it.
Joyce Grieve, a resident who has been using the scheme since it was first introduced, said: “I love recycling, so I was doing it already – I don’t like to throw things away that we don’t need to. But I really like the new service.”
Edinburgh Councillor Lesley Hinds said: “These figures are extremely heartening and demonstrate the impact the new service is bound to have on recycling in the city. There is no doubt we need to reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfill, and I am confident that the public will help us to achieve this, as the first phase of the roll-out has shown.
As we introduce the service to more and more households, we will continue to learn from the process, making every effort to help people adjust to the changes.”
The service has been running since September and currently covers 20,000 homes. Plans have been made to expand the scheme to cover a further 17,000 houses with the goal in 2015 to reach a grand total of 140,000.
