Paisley’s Recycling Super Hub opens.
Residents in Paisley will be able to recycle their waste at the new Recycling Super Hub.
The renovated recycling site at Underwood Road will reopen on Friday 28 February at 8am.
Benefiting from a £1.25 million revamp, the Super Hub layout has been redesigned to improve road access. A new one-way system round the site will reduce traffic queues and allow cars to easily access the site.
Better recycling facilities at street level and clearly signposted recycling facilities will make it easier for residents to recycle their waste.
The Recycling Super Hub is one of the busiest recycling centres in Renfrewshire and the site is expected to see significantly improved recycling performance.
Councillor Eddie Devine, Convener of the Environment Policy Board, said, “It is vital that a facility like the Recycling Super Hub is available to residents. As the most popular recycling site there was a definite need to improve the site’s access and recycling facilities.
“The £1.25 million overhaul of the site has enabled us to offer a better laid out site that has improved road access, is easier for cars to drive through the site and is clearly signposted.
“Recycling our waste is an important step towards a greener Renfrewshire. We have big targets to meet for recycling our waste and reducing how much is sent to landfill.
“I’d encourage residents to come along on Friday 28 February to see the improvements at the Recycling Super Hub for themselves.”
Significant investment was made at Renfrew, Erskine and Linwood Household Waste Recycling Centres between 2005 and 2007. The recycling rate at each site improved to 60% following the renovations.
Currently, 50% of all waste must be recycled to achieve the Zero Waste Scotland targets.
