How can Salisbury help in the fight against plastic?

Plastic Waste

Published by Faye Tryhorn at 5:50am 8th November 2018.

We're being invited to put forward ideas that could reduce plastic waste in the city at a public meeting tonight.

One of the items on the agenda at the Salisbury Area Board later (Thursday November 8th) is for a debate on plastics.

It's aimed at coming up with ideas on how everyone in the city can cut the amount of plastic waste going to landfill.

The debate comes as Wiltshire Council is reviewing their recycling strategy to help towards that goal.

The average household in the county uses 480 plastic items a year, but only around two thirds of them are recycled.

Salisbury's Community Engagement Manager for Wiltshire Council, Karen Linaker says:

"Come and discuss what more we can all do in Salisbury to recycle and make better decisions as consumers."

Anyone's welcome to go along to the Area Board meeting this evening.

It's at Salisbury City Hall from 6.30pm.

If you want to know more, or can't make the meeting, you can also contact Karen Linaker by email.
