Three new glass recycling containers have been installed at the top of Castle Street in Ellon.

Ellon and District councillor Gillian Owen commented: “I have been approached by many residents since the removal of the glass containers at the Community House.

“I have been consulting with officers on several sites and I am delighted that we have finally been able to find an appropriate place.

“I would like to thank officers for their perseverance in this matter and hope the residents of Castle Park will find this facility useful.”

The glass recycling containers are sited in an accessible position for residents in and around Portsoy Crescent.

Councillor Owen added: “Residents who have suggestions for further sites please do get in touch with me so that it can be investigated by Officers and hopefully more facilities can help to promote glass recycling.”
