    Moray Reach Out (MRO) have been awarded funding to work in collaboration with fellow social enterprise ReBOOT to share information, expertise and knowledge to develop ther recycling and training enterprises. This would be at both MRO’s Buckie and ReBOOT’s Forres locations. The idea is to carry out a practical feasibility study to establish a greater understanding about plastics in Moray and ways to process and use the plastic waste they receive from their customers. This would be through actively producing on a small scale, locating buyers and testing the market with a view to developing larger scale operations in the North of Scotland.  The project will create 30 new training placements and additional training for existing placements. Ultimately the project will reduce the carbon footprint by processing and producing saleable products within Moray rather than passing on plastic as waste.  Crucial to the success of the project is the Development Worker post which LEADER is funding.
