Zero Waste Scotland Visit to Haven Recycle

Zero Waste Scotland Visit to Haven Recycle

Haven Recycle’s Anthony Benney and Julieanne Levett welcome Tony Stewart (right) from Zero Waste Scotland to the Hillington site.

Haven Recycle recently hosted a visit from Zero Waste Scotland - the Scottish Government’s umbrella body which encourages all viable waste reduction initiatives through the Waste and Resources Action Plan (WRAP).

Haven Recycle secured funding from the Increase III programme, managed by Zero Waste Scotland. This allowed Haven to invest in the capital equipment and other resources required to get the venture off the ground in 2010.

After a tour of Haven Recycle’s dedicated and secure recycling facilities, Tony Stewart from Zero Waste Scotland, praised the Hillington operation as a “good news story.”

After a presentation on Haven Recycle's objectives for 2013 - which acknowledged  the input and advice from Zero Waste Scotland that have helped the social enterprise to its current successes - Tony pledged that support from Zero Waste Scotland would continue as Haven Recycle pushes ahead with its plans for growth.
