The Waste Aware campaign is focused on getting the "Reduce Reuse Recycle" message into the Community.
Approximately 30,000 tonnes of waste are produced each year in the Western Isles and most of this waste is disposed of to Landfill Sites at Bennadrove and Rueval. For a number of years now, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar has been developing systems and processes to try to separate and recycle some of this waste material and divert it from Landfill.
The Council now have a Waste Aware team dedicated to delivering a campaign to promote reduction, reuse and recycling of waste created in the Western Isles. The Waste Aware Team can be contacted by telephone on 01851 709900 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
