Water refill scheme

Cllr Milne’s – water refill scheme a big win for our people and environment

Friday 08 June 2018

Cllr Georgina Milne has said she is delighted after Belfast City Council backed her proposals for a water refill scheme in the city’s civic spaces.

The Councillor for Ormiston in East Belfast said:

“This scheme should help reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in our seas and oceans.

“People are sick of the huge amount of plastic waste that ends up in our oceans and seas, harming marine life and polluting beaches both locally and further afield.

“Also, improved access to free, clean drinking water in Belfast’s civic spaces is a big win for people and visitors to our city.

“I am delighted to bring environmental issues before the Council. Belfast is a growing city, that growth must be sustainable and prioritise public health and our environment”.
