Campbeltown Wastewatchers Ltd

Campbeltown Wastewatchers Ltd is a community based recycling organisation which was set up to reduce the amount of waste being transported to landfills from the south Kintyre area of Argyll and to provide employment opportunities particularly for people with special needs.


Campbeltown Wastewatchers Ltd also recycle textiles, drinks cans, plastic milk and soft drinks bottles, and provide confidential shredding services for local businesses.

Over 76 tonnes of textiles were recycled by Campbeltown Wastewatchers in the 12 months to July 2003.

Funding for the development of these projects has come from the Community Fund (formerly known as the National Lottery Charities Board), the European Regional Development Fund, the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation & the Landfill Tax Rebate Scheme.

Since the projects started in 1998 hundreds of tonnes of waste have been removed annually from the waste stream to produce income, rather than landfilled which costs the taxpayer.

They now offer a kerbside collection to Kintyre households and service an increasing number of community recycling points across Argyll. Much of the collected paper is shredded for sale as animal bedding.

Campbeltown Wastewatchers Ltd is a charitable organisation, registration no SCO28296.

All prices are subject to Value added tax.
