  5. Message from Sue: we have received information about the new Waste Management Regulations (Waste Scotland Regulations 2012).  These mean that we must recycle metal, plastic, glass, paper and card from 1st January 2014.  As we don’t produce much waste this shouldn't make a huge impact in our church, but if anyone is clearing out the bin in the church please be aware of this.
