MUSICIANS are being urged to put their instruments to good use by signing up for a unique amnesty.

Zero Waste Scotland is encouraging musical groups to sign up as a collection partner for this year’s Pass it on Week, which runs from March 10 to 18 and aims to showcase re-use as an attractive alternative to new items.

Music organisations and charities are being asked to act as collection points for people to drop off instruments which are no longer being used.

A spokesman for Zero Waste Scotland, said: “The amnesty is a great way for people to pass on the gift of music.”
