Bike Project Update.

As of 16th February 2018 our bike mechanic is leaving us for pastures new - to Dunaverty golf course as new assistant greenkeeper! - and we wish him well and thank him for all his hard work while at Kintyre Recycling 
So in the meantime we will not be able to provide all the bike services that we are currently offering. These will be updated on here and on Facebook
However we still have a variety of consumables for sale including tubes, tyres, cables etc.
We will still be selling reconditioned bikes but unfortunately will not be able to carry out the same amount of services.
We have many plans in the pipeline with our new Reuse and Recycling factory and intend to provide these services again and more in the near future 
Listen out for updates and don't hesitate to get in touch if you want to find out more or have any questions 
Many thanks   KRL

                                                                   Christmas Facts

  •  Last Christmas we used an estimated 289,000 tonnes of card packaging. Luckily most of us recycle card!
  •  Most of us recycle, but we need to keep it going. We could make a cardboard motorway stretching from Glasgow to Lapland and back 103 times with all the card packaging we use at Christmas!
                                               Top Tips 
  •  Although most of us recycle, toilet roll tubes and toothpaste boxes are sometimes forgotten – but it’s easy and worthwhile to recycle these smaller items from the bathroom.
  • More and more people recycle – it’s easy! Food and drink cartons need only a quick rinse, and can be flattened to save space in your recycling bags.
  • Lots of people recycled their Christmas cards last year. All glitter-free greeting cards can be recycled. If possible, tear off the glitter section as well as any non-paper items like badges and batteries.
  • Many of us will be recycling wrapping paper after Christmas. Want a top tip? Try the Scrunch Test: if you scrunch it and it bounces back, it can’t be recycled.
  • We recycle every day – are you doing it right? Flattening it saves space, just don’t leave it out in the rain – if cardboard is wet, mould sets in and it can’t be recycled
  We wish you all a Happy Christmas and peaceful New Year 
Remember to Recycle !
