New nodes for recycling in the city

The new recycling nodes accept clear glass, brown glass, and green glass and also have an additional bin for mixed recycling, the same of which people can put in their own blue bin.

The purpose of the Recycling Nodes ,which have been funded by Zero Waste Scotland, is to make glass bottle and jar recycling more accessible to householders in the City.  Currently Inverness has one glass bank per 800 people, compared to the Highland average which is one glass bank for every 440 people.

The new nodes can be found at Bught Park beside the shop, Lochiel Road in the car park for the Football Pitches,  Culloden Pitches car park off Keppoch Road and finally in the Co-op car park in Milton of Leys.

Zero Waste Scotland are providing an additional 7 nodes, and this is where the public can help. The Highland Council’s Recycling Team are appealing for people to suggest suitable locations for a node to be placed. To pass on your suggestion please either calling the team on 01349 886603, or email recycle@highland.gov.uk.
