The Fife Conservation Group has established a beautiful wildlife reserve in the Highlands of Scotland, in the memory of Colin Burt. 

The building materials can be used in many ways on the reserve, for example, ply donated from sites in Edinburgh was made into bird boxes and recyled timber was used to make a gate. Construction bridges that are used on a demolition site to protect concrete foundations were repurposed on the paths, while small off-cuts of construction netting was repurposed as tree protection.

Future plans include completing a deer hide and building a fishing jetty using waste polystyrene.

We’ve got so many projects here that we wouldn’t have been able to do without the donations that we’ve had
