Recycling Centre Visit for P5-7

Ground-breaking visit today when P5-7 headed to the Community Reuse Shop and Stranraer Zero Waste Project!

What an informative morning we had; looking around the Reuse shop at all the goods which have been donated by the people of Wigtownshire to be re-used by the people of Wigtownshire. Everything from full-size snooker tables from the George Hotel to pianos, from books to CDs, from golf clubs to food processors – you name it, it was there!

After Wilma had shown us around (and we’d enjoyed a pit-stop with juice and biscuits!), we headed over to the recycling area. We were amazed at how tidy it was for, essentially, a place where all your rubbish goes! Plastic, cans, paper, garden waste, electrical appliances, clothes, batteries and even cooking oil can all be recycled!

The Scottish Government has a goal to have no biodegradable land-fill by 2020 and it’s clear to see that Stranraer is definitely one of the leaders in this area! And now that our P5-7 pupils, who will be our adults of the future, are aware of just how much can be recycled, things are looking really positive. Well done Eco Friends!
