The Highland Council has launched a survey to capture public views and opinions on the possible adaptation of Nairn Recycling Centre, or indeed any other Highland Recycling Centre, to form a Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle facility.

The survey is being facilitated by Enscape Consulting Limited, who are undertaking this canvassing as part of their feasibility study for a Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle Feasibility Study for Nairn.

Following a competitive procurement and tendering process earlier in the year, the company was appointed by the Council in June 2023 to begin undertaking this study.

Take part today – the survey is open until 4 August 2023.

The study, which is scheduled to conclude in late August, will assess the practicality and viability of the model in Nairn and identify potential opportunities and challenges.

Upon conclusion, the final report and recommendations will be reported to the relevant Council Committees for their consideration.

A site visit took place at the Nairn Household Waste Recycling Centre, during which Chair of the Nairnshire Area Committee, Councillor Michael Green, met with Brian Menzies of Enscape Consulting to discuss the progress of the study to date.

Chair of the Nairnshire Area Committee, Councillor Michael Green, encouraged as many people as possible to take part in the survey and commented:

“The Feasibility Study for Nairn is moving forward at pace and is now entering the vitally important public consultation phase.

“I would therefore encourage everybody to get involved and make their views known.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Nairn to create a facility which will move forward the Net Zero agenda for the benefit of not only Nairnshire, but ultimately the entire Highlands.”

Chair of the Communities and Place Committee, Councillor Graham MacKenzie, added:

“The Feasibility Study for Nairn is now well underway and will align well with the Council’s strategic priority to a deliver a more Sustainable Highland Environment.

“This also aligns with work being progressed nationally as the Scottish Government’s proposed Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill has been introduced to help tackle the climate emergency and biodiversity crisis by developing new powers to reduce residual waste and grow the green economy.”
