|West Lothian lights up for The Queen’s Birthday

Beacons were placed on the highest peaks in each part of the UK, and other areas of the world, and were lit up to create a symbolic link of fire in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday. Members of the Army Cadet Force, Boys Brigade and Guides joined the celebrations along with many other members of the public.
|Slim bin rolls out.
|West Lothian Council is set to become the latest Scottish council to reduce the size of grey (landfill) household bins in an effort to encourage more householders to recycle their waste. The council will begin the process of replacing existing grey bins with a new slim bin from May 2016 onwards. The bins will be rolled out on a phased basis and all areas should have received their new bin by the beginning of 2017. City of Edinburgh Council, Fife Council and Perth and Kinross Council have already introduced smaller bins. The change is designed to actively encourage residents to reduce the amount of waste being placed into grey bins and to use more of the recycling facilities currently on offer.|
