Changes aimed at achieving savings through increased recycling and more efficient use of people, equipment and recycling centres are set to be made in Angus.

A spokesman for Angus Council said yesterday: “From today, all of our seven recycling centres will be geared towards accepting as wide a range of recyclables as possible.

“Four recycling centres – Brechin, Carnoustie, Kirriemuir and Monifieth – will only accept recyclable items. Only the bigger centres at Arbroath, Forfar and Montrose will continue to accept non-recyclable waste.”

Communities vice convener Councillor Tommy Stewart said: “We must recycle smarter for our environment, recycle more to retain all seven of the recycling centres in Angus, as people have asked us to do, and modernise our waste and recycling services and use them to the maximum to deliver savings.”
