New Recycling Facilities At The Prom Cafe In Weymouth
Weymouth Town Council is hoping new recycling facilities at The Prom Cafe on the seafront will help make Weymouth a cleaner and greener place to live, work and visit.
Products will be collected and recycled from the cafe will include compostable waste such as tea bags, as well as cans, plastic bottles, card, glass bottles and drinks cartons. Each week a sign above the recycling station will indicate how much waste has been recycled each week.
The cafe already used Vegware products for cups, lids, food packaging and cutlery, which are all compostable and trying to reduce single plastics as much as possible.
Cllr David Harris, spokesperson on the council's climate and ecological emergency work, said: "Introducing these colourful bins will help to increase the amount of waste that can be recycled from the cafe. To help prevent plastic-pollution in our beautiful town, we felt it was important to remove or replace single use plastics across the council's daily operations and services."
The compostable waste will be taken to Weymouth Town Council's community grow space at Tumbledown. If the trial is successful it will be extended to another facility at the Beach cafe kiosk at Brunswick Terrace.
