Pass it on Week 2018 is Scotland’s annual celebration of re-use – join in and get swapping, donating, sharing and repairing to help make things last!

Pass it on Week, which is now in it’s 4th year, will be running from 10-18 March 2018. The week is all about re-use, so passing things on, upcycling, swapping, repairing – anything to #MakeThingsLast.

Our community bike workshop De’ils on Wheels will be getting involved in Pass It On Week. As a Revolve Reuse accredited centre, De’ils on Wheels actively promotes the re-use of quality bicycles and encourages locals to love their bikes. Second hand doesn’t mean second best.

PlayOnPedalsDe’ils on Wheels is taking part in a city wide children’s bike amnesty as part of the Play On Pedals project and Pass It On week.

Play on Pedals gives pre-school children across Glasgow the chance to learn to ride a bike before they start school.

We are looking for donations of unwanted balance bikes (ideally with a brake) or 12″ children’s pedal bikes. These will be checked by our qualified mechanics and made available to nurseries across the city.

You can drop off unwanted bikes at De’ils On Wheels workshop every Wednesday (11am-3pm) and Thursday (1-5pm) throughout March.

Crate-of-IRN-BRU_obj7810702IRN-BRU makers A. G. Barr have announced that they will no longer be offering 30p incentive for people to return their iconic glass bottles following an investment of £5m in its Cumbernauld facility with the installation of new, high-speed filling capability for its glass bottle range.

The planned investment means Barr will no longer have the infrastructure to handle returned bottles. Barr has seen a significant reduction in the number of bottles being returned in recent years as consumers increasingly choose the convenience of recycling at home. Barr saw 90% of its bottles returned in the early 90s, but now only half of bottles are being returned.

Barr will continue to accept bottles until the 31st December 2015 and consumers can continue to return their bottles to retailers until this date. From the 1st January 2016 consumers should recycle their bottles through their household recycling scheme or using `on-the-go’ public recycling facilities.
