Kerbside Glass Recycling

by jamescalder on 6 October, 2018

At the Full Fife Council Dunfermline South Liberal Democrat Councillor James Calder proposed a feasibility study for bringing in kerbside glass recycling to Fife. The Administration opposed holding this feasibility study.
Cllr. Calder has said,
In certain local authorities such as Edinburgh we have kerbside glass recycling boxes that the Council collects. This ensures glass recycling is accessible to all and that there is less need for recycling points which as we know are often a magnet for flytipping.
We have a great record in recycling in Fife and I was hoping to see if there was the possibility to progress even further. I proposed for a feasibility study but unfortunately the SNP and Labour opposed this. I understand we cannot simply put this into place but I did hope for us to start investigating the possibility. However I will continue to support any measures by the Council to make glass recycling easier and more accessible.
