Promoting recycling and reducing litter is part of the park’s education programme and sea lion Poppy showed the Minister and park visitors how easy it can be to recycle. 

Iain Gulland, Director, Zero Waste Scotland, said:

“Recycle Week highlights the importance of recycling wherever we are, and is a great time to reflect on how well we are doing in using all the facilities on offer at home, through central collection points, when we’re at work, shopping or anywhere else.

“The scheme at Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park is an excellent example of how much can be achieved by making recycling facilities available to visitors. Using education work to reinforce the message will ensure that visitors will continue to recycle once they’ve left the Park.”

There are now 2,700 recycling bins at 32 different sites and facilities across Scotland funded through the Recycle on the Go scheme.
