With reference to the story in last week’s Courier concerning Kintyre
Recycling Limited (KRL) storing unsorted recycling bags at Bengullion Road, in which I was quoted, my apologies for inadvertently feeding you false information.

It was Rory Colville, not Donald Kelly, who put the motion to Argyll and Bute Council to increase the funding of KRL for the council contract at the end of  the financial year, if required.

And it was John Armour who proposed an amendment, which passed, that it be during the financial year, if required.

I would appreciate it if you could print this, assigning the blame to me, where it belongs.

I should add that, thanks to Herculean efforts by the KRL staff, the overspill of unsorted bags at Bengullion Road should be cleared by the time you read this, as well as much of the backlog of sorting at the main site.

Congratulations and thanks to them all for clearing up our Christmas excesses.

Tony Williams,
