Bowls Scotland partner with Changeworks Recycling

Bowls Scotland are delighted to announce a new partnership with the Scottish waste management firm, Changeworks Recycling.

Changeworks Recycling provides award winning, high-quality recycling and waste management services to a wide range of UK based businesses. Formed in 2001, Changeworks Recycling currently helps over 2,500 companies each year to reduce waste, carbon, and costs.

The Planet Mark accredited company collect a wide range of materials which will be involved in the day to day running of bowling clubs, including paper, cardboard, cans, plastic bottles, food, general waste, and secure shredding services.

Before completing the partnership agreement, Changeworks Recycling undertook trial schemes with Eddlewood Bowling Club in Hamilton and Hillside Bowling Club in Edinburgh to assist with their waste management. Through recycling materials with Changeworks Recycling both clubs have been able to generate four figure savings on their bills over the next 12 months.

Looking forward to working alongside Changeworks Recycling, Alan McMillan, CEO of Bowls Scotland, said: “I’m excited to be working with Changeworks Recycling and seeing them support our member clubs over the coming years.

“As we all know costs are increasing for clubs which has a severe impact on how businesses operate. I would encourage every member club to utilise the services provided by Changeworks Recycling to help balance costs in other areas.

“Not only can clubs make significant savings but ensuring we reduce waste will make our sport more sustainable for future generations.”

Forbes Connor, Managing Director from Changeworks Recycling, added: “We are incredibly proud to partner with Bowls Scotland on this initiative.

“The partnership is based on a shared ambition to improve the environment in which we live and work, and a commitment to helping bowls clubs to significantly reduce costs on their waste services whilst increasing recycling.

“We are excited for the opportunity to work with the clubs as we strive together for a more sustainable future.”
