STRONG AND SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES- South Ayrshire Council – Troon Sand Dune Restoration Project

The Troon Dune Restoration Project recyles and re-uses beach waste on Troon South beach to help sustain and restore the adjacent fragile sand dune formation.

The innovative new working practice has also diverted over 1,000 tonnes of waste from landfill to date, resulting in budget savings of over £80,000 and has helped the Council meet it’s landfill diversion targets. The Dune Project has provided an economically friendly way of disposing waste and helps to restore a delicate natural eco system that can easily be lost if left to erode. This has helped to restore the dunes significantly. Natural habitats, wildlife and organisms that once were lost from the erosion of the dunes in previous years has been re-introduced. The quality of the beach has been improved from the waste clean up and the method being used is a pioneering sustainable technique.
