I was very angry to hear from local residents in Portnahaven that their recycling bins have been used by numerous motorhomes for disposing of general waste including food waste.

I have visited the recycling bins site in Portnahaven and spoke to my constituents in person about this and I can confirm that unfortunately Portnahaven’s recycling bins are full of general waste.

This is as unacceptable as it is disrespectful.

I have contacted the appropriate department with the council and asked for an investigation to be done and I asked for some addition signage for the bins area.

I made it very clear that my constituents should not lose their recycling facilities as a result of their bins being misused by someone else.

I will continue to monitor this situation and provide an update as soon as I have more information.
