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.

On 29 November 2019 the bottom part of the bin will be constructed from 500 ml eco-bricks with a wire netting surround. On a later date, the top part of the trunk plus branches will be added. They will be made out of wire netting tubes stuffed with larger sized eco-bricks.
