Eagle’s new eco-bin will help ensure that every golf club in Scotland can drive towards the new zero waste initiative, and avoid heavy fines by doing so.

Starting from 1st January 2014, all Scottish businesses must recycle their waste i.e. plastic, metal, glass, paper and food, or face significant fines from the government.

The plans come as part of a drive by the Scottish Parliament to be at a 70% waste recycling rate by 2015, and will be backed by an awareness campaign from Zero Waste Scotland.

To help golfers separate their rubbish at source, Eagle’s new bin comprises three individual mesh containers that are each named to help ensure the rubbish – which Eagle’s own research shows is primarily bottles, litter and cans – all gets separated correctly out on the course by the golfers.

This in turn makes the separation of the waste to be collected for onward disposal significantly easier and more straightforward.

Eagle’s Phil McInley commented, “The eco-bin is one of those simple ideas that will make things much easier for the people tasked with looking after the course. With Eagle’s eco-bin, not only can all the Scottish golf clubs reduce the risk of heavy fines and improve their recycling strategy, but every golf club in the UK can now play its part in the drive towards zero waste.”
