ScotRail launches major new recycling trial

ScotRail has launched major trial of recycling bins at 19 stations across Scotland, thanks to a £37,000 grant from Zero Waste Scotland, as part of its Recycle on the Go project.

7 May 13

Customers can now put recyclable plastic bottles, paper and tin cans into separate bins at Aberdeen, Aviemore, Ayr, Elgin, Fort William, Glasgow Queen Street, Gourock, Helensburgh, Inverness, Irvine, Kilmarnock, Largs, Milngavie, Oban, Partick, Perth, Stirling, Stonehaven, and Wemyss Bay stations.

Iain Gulland, Director of Zero Waste Scotland, said:

“These new recycling bins are in busy railway stations and we're very pleased that we've been able to fund this pilot.

 “I hope that people will make best use of the facilities, just as they are doing so more and more at home. When used materials, like empty bottles and drinks cans, can be separated and collected, we can begin to see and use this as a valuable resource rather than waste."
