Further to recent emphasis in the media on reducing plastic waste, we have decided to play our part by becoming one of the UK’s first reduced plastic construction sites.
One of the initiatives as part of this campaign is around reducing the number of single-use plastic bottles used by our workforce and the local community.
To achieve this, we have free-issued re-usable metal water bottles to our entire workforce, which they can keep and refill as necessary instead of going to a shop to purchase a plastic water bottle – which will no doubt end up in our oceans and having a detrimental impact on marine life.
We have provided water dispensers on every five levels of the tower for operatives to use as a refilling station. We have also incorporated a water dispenser point into the hoarding, so that members of the public can have a cup of water – or refill their own reusable bottle – when passing the site, instead of heading to a nearby shop to buy a plastic bottle.
This initiative is helping to reduce the consumption of single use plastic whilst making our workforce and the local community reconsider their plastic consumption and the adverse affect that has on our environment.
