For the Community of Methlick in Aberdeenshire

Methllick Heritage Society


The next meeting of the Society will be held on Tuesday 5th March in the Beaton Hall, Methlick.

The speaker will be George Wood.

His Topic will be “Aberdeen’s Maritime Past”

Mr Wood is well travelled here and abroad. In his early life he worked on trawlers and then on ocean going

Cruise ships.. On leaving the sea he became a maintenance engineer and surveyor working on cranes and other

large engineering equipment. Following this he became a Health and Safety Manager at the building of the

Peterhead power station. Latterly he ran his own consultancy.

I am sure this will be a highly informative and interesting evening and I welcome you all to join us.

A-Z guide now available showing what can be recycled in Aberdeenshire and how

A new online guide is available outlining what materials can and cannot be recycled in Aberdeenshire. The new web page lists a wide range of materials commonly disposed of, offering information on how they can best be recycled.

Over half the materials in local nonrecyclable waste bins are recyclable through existing services – equating to around 30,000 tonnes of recyclable materials being landfilled at a cost of £3.5million a year. Sending materials to landfill costs more than recycling. So recycling not only benefits the environment, it also frees up money for other essential council services.

To see the A-Z of materials and how best to dispose of them visit

Residents are encouraged to get in touch with Recycling and Waste Aberdeenshire Facebook Page if they are unsure how to dispose of any item not listed in the guide.
