A planning application for the plant has been submitted by Viridor for the development - you can find out more about th development here http://www.transformingwasteinglasgow.com/ and about the planning application via the Council's online planning portal - https://publicaccess.glasgow.gov.uk/online-applications/ the reference number is Ref No 12/01631/DC
I'm trying to think of the best place to put this - maybe this group can help!
I'm running a plarn (yarn made form plastic bags) workshop at the Waste Free event in Mono on 6th Feb. As I tend to use reusable shopping bags I'm a little short on plain coloured or self coloured plastic bags to use for the demonstration and workshop.
I'm wondering if anyone would be up for raiding their bag of bags and handing over their brightly coloured plastic bags so I can make them into bracelets or iphone covers or handbags?
It might seem daft to mkae ags into bags, but the crochet or kitted bags are significantly stronger and last longer than our thin plastic ones!
So, if anyone has any,( I'm willing to collect - probably this weekend) let me know on elwattsATgmail.com
I've read a lot of negative things about energy from waste in terms of the amount of energy it actually produces compared with the energy put in to burn the stuff and furthermore the amount of dodgy pollutant it produces in the air.
However it does seem like its becoming the easy fix to the landfill issue. There is not mention of its capacity and how big an area it could serve.
In terms of bulk rubbish there is definitely an opportunity to create a reuse stations at bulk dumping sites which could sort, and distribute unwanted items.
There is a big waste and recycling development proposed for East Renfrewshire, just close to the M77. The Lifetime Recycling Village proposes to build a sustainable future for Scotland to address the fact that every year, in the West of Scotland alone, 6 million tonnes of waste sent to landfill unnecessarily.
The development was reported on in The Herald just before Xmas and local residents are already putting together their opposition to the proposals.
These can be recycled at:
- any of the four waste recycling centres in Glasgow
- at Pollok Park and Kelvingrove Park
- or they can be placed in the brown bin if you have one

Maryhill Community Central Halls are collecting Xmas cards or you can recycle them as part of the Woodlands Trust annual campaign at your loca M&S stores, TK Maxx stores
