Sending Perth and Kinross Council’s recycling waste 160 miles to Northumberland has been deemed “unacceptable”.

Last year, PKC sent 10,366 tonnes of dry mixed recycling waste to West Sleekburn near Newcastle.

Perth and Kinross recycling waste has been processed there since 2016.

It was previously recycled at Binn Farm, Glenfarg.
