Grant awarded: £84,418

Project dates: 1 January 2014 - 31 March 2016

The Ardroy Recycle Project at Ardroy Outdoor Education Centre in Lochgoilhead recycled wetsuits and other equipment to eliminate part of their landfill usage and to reduce energy consumption by using polytunnels as part of the drying process. These two strands added to the food and garden waste recycling plant run at the Centre enabled the project to give practical examples and guidance to those attending residential courses whether they be children, teenagers or adults.
