Rugby Lib Dems lead the way on reducing plastic

By Rugby Lib Dems

Tim and Noreen Litter Pick March 2017Commenting on the passing of Rugby Borough Council's Single Use Plastics Policy at Full Council on Tuesday 23 April 2019, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats Group, Cllr Tim Douglas (Paddox) said:

"After proposing a motion with Councillor Noreen New to look at ways Rugby Borough Council can reduce its use of single-use plastics, Liberal Democrats welcome this much needed policy. It is a step in the right direction, but the Council must not delay and begin engaging with partners, suppliers and the local community. We've all got our bit to do in reducing plastic waste.

"We need to look at progress in 12 months to ensure its aims are achieved. Only be setting tangible targets and reaching them can we really make an impact and I will continue to ensure the issue is top of the Council's agenda."
