A unique solution in unique circumstances

recycling western isles waste anaerobic digestorStill being a (free) subscriber to Recycling and Waste World, I was pleasantly surprised to see a full page article about the new recycling plant at the Creed Business Park.

The full article can be read here, and full credit for the achievement must go to Mun Gold, Director, and Uisdean Fraser, formerly in charge of the entire procurement process.

I only lead some of the decisions, but I'm very proud of what we have achieved, in delivering the largest ever single capital investment programme undertaken by the Comhairle. The plant was opened by Jack McConnell just prior to the election (surprise, surprise!) but left the legacy of a well visited caption contest.

Any chance of a new caption contest, Angus?

Is the compost still being classed as special waste by SEPA?

Don't know - I'm out of the loop. SEPA didn't know how to treat the treated compost, and they were having to re-write their manuals.

I know many keen gardeners are very wary about using what comes out of their given what goes in.
Possibly it's just a question of education.
