More Recycling Bins Please!
Its not difficult or complicated- theres far too few recycling bins in Edinburgh parks, eg Inverleith.(and eg Princes Street etc but thats a separate matter). Given this initiative is partially about the climate/environmental, surely significantly reducing the amount of waste going into normal bins (or the grass or bushes!) is a relatively low cost no-brainer.
Taking Inverleith as an example- there are some bottle banks outside the allotments (but on the main road). These are too far away from most people. There should be more, and also paper ones.
Rather than being an eyesore, I am sure more asthetically pleasing than just 'standard bins on wheels' could be chosen (like the round one in Princes St Gardens).
Why the contribution is important
This initiative could be a really important step forward to:
1. Increase recycling and hence more environmentally friendly
2. Reduce litter
3. Reduce risk of dogs/small children swallowing beer bottle tops etc.
More bins overall, but more specifically, more recycling ones encourgaes people that wee bit more to use them.
I hope you agree.
