You can’t take it to the bank, recyclers – it’s closed!

A RECYCLING bank has itself been recycled after being forced to close.

The facility in the car park of the Bishopbriggs branch of Morrisons has been scrapped because lorries were finding it hard to gain access to empty the containers.

Council officers are now hunting for a suitable alternative site. Recycling facilities are available at Asda in Bishopbriggs, the Leisuredrome and Mavis Valley recycling centre in Balmuildy Road.

Derek Cunningham, the council’s director of development and infrastructure, said: “I would urge residents to continue recycling their waste materials at one of the alternative centres nearby whilst officers try to identify a suitable site near to Morrisons.”
