Fighting for freerecyling

How did I miss Scotland breaking free?

Make every page count - recycle

So often I am amazed to find yet another set of groups disillusioned with TFN so much that they break free. They are so tired of the oppressive regime that Deron Beal has created they just want to do what they do well, and get on with it – with no politics, no interference. Doing their own thing – which is remarkably similar to what we all do. Just SAYING NO TO TFN.

So last year a number of Scottish groups broke away and formed themselves under the “recycle” brand. These groups include

Central Scotland ReCycle Cafe –
Cumbernauld Recycle –
Falkirk recycle –
Grangemouth Recycle –
Stirling Recycle –

  1. We are completely happy being away from the non-local politics and unprofessional bickering that TFN has become, we are growing and continuing to do what we set the original groups up to do: To Recycle.

    We have a more Community focused goal now too and we help and advise each other in our groups. (Pretty much the way TFN was meant to be initially, a shame really)

    We’re not obsessive about our umbrella organization as we recognize we are local groups, the organization ( helps in many ways, Local advertising, National focus, group identity, as well as advice and assistance from fellow G.O.’s.

    We wish all fellow Recycling groups (whatever they are called) the very best of luck in your endeavors.
