Recycling of waste in your blue bin

Today, I joined a tour of the Blochairn Recycling Centre which separated the waste from your blue bin for recycling. This is a council-owned facility which processes a range of items for recycling including cans, cardboard, newspaper, and plastic cartons.

Waste is dumped by cleansing lorry and 
transferred to a conveyor belt for processing.

Items are separated in to different sections for recycling.

Aluminium cans are made in to bales for recycling.

This Centre has been operated by staff from Land and Environmental Services for the last 9 months. It processes waste from blue bins from across the city. There is potential to extend the amount of waste that is recycled and a waste strategy to maximise the use of this facility is being developed.
