Recycling bin for Send Recreation Ground

 In summer 2019, residents of Send Parish once again rose to the challenge of joining in a new community project. The idea was for the Get Creative Group to create a recycling bin  to go on Send Recreation Ground.  It would be made largely of eco- bricks,: plastic bottles stuffed with single-use plastic that would otherwise go  to landfill. Things like sweet and, biscuit  wrappers, film from wrapped fruit and vegetables, etc. 

As people started to make the bricks, they became more aware of how much single-use plastic was finding its way into their homes and some looked at ways of trying to reduce this.

The project was deferred over the winter of 2019/ 2020 since the 'cob' used to hold he bottom layer of bottles together would not set in low temperatures.
