In response to a Green enquiry, residents in flatted properties in Hutton Drive in East Mains, East Kilbride can now start recycling. A local resident had raised the problem of a lack of recycling facilities with Kirsten Robb, highlighting the difficulty of having to transport recyclable waste to a supermarket. Kirsten wrote to the council to ask if one of their three communal bins could be designated for recycling and got a favourable response. Residents have now been issued with a recycling bag.
