Unloved golf clubs wanted in Scottish reuse scheme

Zero Waste Scotland/garage2green

Do you have some golf clubs hanging around in the garage? A lot of people do, and they're really just going to waste as both sports equipment and material that could be recycled.

To tackle these dust-gatherers, a new campaign called garage2green has teed off (their pun) to encourage people in Scotland to drop off their unloved golf kit at their nearest club, from where it will either be recycled or donated to golf academies to help get new players interested in the sport.

The garage2green initiative is being supported by Zero Waste Scotland, who encourages the reuse of all sorts things to make Scotland a circular economy.

Iain Gulland, Chief Executive, Zero Waste Scotland, comments: "garage2green is a great idea to tap into a wasted resource – in every local street in Scotland there's likely a few garages or sheds that have a set of golf clubs that have been forgotten about.

"Not only will the pilot divert valuable resources away from being dumped in landfill, and create potential remanufacturing opportunities here in Scotland, it may help make a set of clubs more affordable and encourage new players into the sport."
