A Plastics Free Council

There is a general awareness across the country that plastics are damaging our environment – especially our oceans.

Groups like ‘Deal With It’ are showing a brilliant example with cleaning our local beaches.

How can DDC help?

Deal and Dover Green Party will do what we can. As a start we will make DDC a plastics free council and extend this to council subcontractors.  We are working with Transition Dover that tackling plastic pollution is discussed by Dover Town Council followed by action.

Recycling in our area can be improved and we also would introduce bulk collections and reduce fly tipping.
