Bournemouth s beach goers will now be able to recycle drink cans while enjoying the seaside, as part of a drink can recycling initiative introduced by Bournemouth Borough Council.
Every Can Counts, a partnership between drinks can manufacturers, the recycling industry and waste management companies, aims to increase the amount of cans recycled by people in public places. It will work with the council to introduce special drinks can crushing units placed alongside existing recycling bins on Bournemouths Pier Approach.
Bournemouth Council Environment and Transport portfolio holder Robert Lawton said: We want to make it as easy as possible for the public to recycle and look forward to seeing how a programme like this can really help contribute towards making the beach a more enjoyable place to be for both visitors and locals.
Every Can Counts spokesman Rick Hindley said: The beach is a beautiful spot. By making it easy for people to recycle their empty drink cans here, it can stay that way. All drinks cans are 100 per cent recyclable, so using the new Every Can Counts bins means that while theyre enjoying the sea and sunshine people are also doing their bint for the environment!
