Aberdeen councillors will consider a request to use recycled plastic pellets to repair roads next week.
Liberal Democrat councillor Steve Delaney has asked for research into the “plastic roads” scheme in a bid to re-use waste and cut costs.
His motion states the recycled plastic pellets would be added to an asphalt mixture to fill potholes and resurface roads.
It was revealed by the Evening Express earlier this week that Aberdeen City Council spent more than £1.3 million on repairing potholes and other defects last year – more than double the amount five years ago.
Carlisle was the first local authority in England to introduce the partially plastic roads.
Mr Delaney said he would like council officers to research if a trial might be possible in Aberdeen.
Councillors on the operational delivery committee will vote on the motion when they meet on Thursday.
