There was a tour out to the new waste management plant on the Lochs Road, where the structure is going up at a very fast rate. We weren't allowed into the site due to the danger, so we spent all our time outside the fence like a bunch of schoolboys and girls. It was freezing cold, and despite a hat, jacket and gloves I was icy through when I got back to the Comhairle.
It is supposed to be enclosed by Christmas, and on target for completion - if only we could say the same about the plant in Uist. Recycling in the Western Isles will get a huge boost when this comes on stream.
We already have the segregated collection in the Stornoway area, and the recycling bins throughout the islands, now we will move to the next stage of separating biodegradable waste at source - inside the house.
