Midlothian urged to ‘Pass it on’

Midlothian residents are being encouraged to join in with a re-use revolution, as part of a new national week to promote swapping, sharing and donating.

Pass it on Week will take place from March 7-15 and Zero Waste Scotland is promoting it to encourage people to pass on things they no longer want to someone else, rather than throwing them away.

Locals are being urged to donate items to charity, swap with friends and give second hand goods a try, as part of a national week to minimise the amount of re-usable materials sent to landfill.

Zero Waste Scotland is also encouraging individuals, businesses, community groups, schools, colleges and charity and re-use shops to organise events such as swap shops, clothes swaps, repair workshops and upcycling sessions to help spread the word and give people a chance to get involved.
