Recycling Containers for Schools07/08/19
ALMOST £50,000 worth of new containers could be set for Dundee schools to help boost the city’s recycling rate.
A tender from Leafield Environmental Ltd to install internal recycling facilities at Dundee’s 50 nursery, primary, secondary and special needs schools is set to be considered by councillors next week.
Anne Rendall convener of Dundee City Council’s neighbourhood services committee said: “Young people have led the way for a long time when it comes to recycling, after all they are the ones who will inherit the planet, so it makes good sense to ensure that they have the right facilities to do the right thing when they are at school.
“The containers will be tailored for the needs of each of the premises they will be in, and help harness and encourage our young peoples’ desire to recycle.”
After a tender evaluation exercise Leafield Environmental Ltd’s bid was identified as the best value for money and is expected to be £49,338.
The neighbourhood services committee meets on Monday (AUGUST19).
