Environmental products group Straight has been awarded a 1.07m pound contract with Scotland’s Dumfries and Galloway Council.
Straight will supply bins for the council’s maiden kerbside recycling initiative.
A 7.0 litre kitchen caddy and 23 litre kerbside caddy will be used for food waste collection.
The group will also supply a 55 litre Ergo kerbside box for mixed glass, metals and plastics along with a 44 litre Ergo kerbside box for paper and card recycling.
‘We are delighted to have been chosen to support the council on its first ever kerbside recycling initiative,’ Jonathan Straight, Chief Executive of Straight, said.
‘The contract win is testament to our recycling expertise and hardwearing products that have been tested across UK Local Authorities over many years. We very much look forward to working with the council.’
Greig Blayney, Service Manager Environment at Dumfries and Galloway Council, said the products would replace old wheeled bins to help separate recyclable goods.
‘Our contract with Straight will play a pivotal role in supporting our maiden kerbside recycling initiative,’ he said.
‘Previously, all residual waste has been collected using wheeled bins, but with our new service encompassing three separate products, we are confident the process will be smooth and successful.’
