Use of Plastics in Council offices

Plans for the council to significantly reduce its use of single-use plastics took a step forward in November 2019 when Members of the Council’s Performance Scrutiny Committee agreed proposals drawn up by a cross-party group of councillors to reduce the use of plastics within council offices, following a Notice of Motion approved by the Full Council. 

These proposals will now be put to Full Council in January 2020. Proposals include the following within the council’s office buildings; no longer providing:

  • plastic water cups and single use paper/plastic cups for hot drinks
  • the removal of water coolers,
  • the removal of automated hot drink machines and
  • the removal of vending machines.

Also a campaign will also be launched to encourage everyone who comes to the three main Council offices to `bring their own cup’.

That the Use of Plastics Members’ Task & Finish Group continue its work for a further 12 months with a view to proposing further actions in the area of: School Catering plus broader procurement around plastic.
