A PARLIAMENTARY motion has been lodged commending the work of a special recycling initiative in Clydebank.
MSP Gil Paterson visited the Recycle Room as it relaunched in a new venue, the Hub Community Centre on Kilbowie Road.
The Recycle Room receives donations of clothes, toys and various household items which any member of the public can come in and have for free.
Founded in January 2016 by Nichola Mable and Amanda Lancaster, the group has been based in St Stephen’s Church Hall and Onslow Road Community Centre.
Gil Paterson MSP said: “I am so impressed with the amazing work Nichola Mable and Amanda Lancaster are doing with the Recycle Room. They have done a brilliant job and are a true asset to the communities of Clydebank.
“The Recycle Room not only prevents items from being thrown away but helps those who may be facing financial pressures – despite everyone always being welcome, no matter what their income.
“I would like to thank the Recycle Room for the great work being done there on behalf of the constituents I represent.
“I am proud to be sharing this good news story with my MSP colleagues with a parliamentary motion.”
