Contactless Water Refill Stations #refillutionANBC
 

We have installed eight Contactless Water Refill Stations from EcoFil to allow residents and visitors to refill for free and have so far saved 43,928* plastic bottles from entering our Marine ways!
*as of March 2024.

So bring your reusable water bottle and stop buying single-use plastic bottles - make the switch to reusable bottles, and take the pledge by scanning the QR code on our refill stations.  
We can all play our part to help reduce plastic waste!

When you refill, why not take 2 minutes using the litter pickers and reusable bags provided to stop plastics and litter reaching our water ways?

  

Take the Pledge

Did you know, Northern Ireland uses 145 million single use plastic bottles every year? 340 million plastic bottles a year could be saved if just 1 in 10 people refilled just once a week.

By making the switch to reusable bottles and not buying single-use plastic bottles, we can all play our part to help reduce plastic waste!

Solar Powered Bins

Solar Powered Bins
 

We now have 26 solar powered bins placed along the Antrim & Newtownabbey shores. The bins are fitted with sensors to alert crews when the bins are reaching capacity so they can be emptied in a bid to prevent overflow. These bins can store up to 20 times the amount of waste as normal buns, requiring them to be emptied less frequently, and therefore cutting emissions.
