Refill Scheme Tameside MBC

Refil Scheme

Through the Refill scheme we are encouraging everyone to use reusable water bottles and refill for free at Refill Stations across Tameside.
 
The aim of the Refill scheme is to promote healthy lifestyle choices and keep hydrated as well as reducing the amount of plastic bottles being purchased, and keeping money in our residents’ pockets.
 
In a recent survey 64% of people said they’d stop buying bottled water if they could access tap water refills. So if you are a local business in Tameside, why not get involved? To join the other Refill Stations in Tameside, contact refill@tameside.gov.uk 
 
If you’re a member of the public who wants to become a Tameside Refiller and stop buying plastic drink bottles – after all, 73% of us are concerned about plastic pollution – you can download the Refill app and find your local Refill Stations, alternatively take a look at the table below for a list of Tameside Refill Stations.
 
You can purchase reusable water bottles from lots of places across Tameside or online. We recommend you purchase BPA-free water bottles.

Refill facts and figures

 
Over the last 15 years, UK consumption of bottled water has doubled.
 
Of the 13 billion plastic bottles used each year in the UK, nearly 60% (7.7 billion) are plastic water bottles.
 
Every minute, one million plastic bottles are bought around the world, and that figure is expected to go up 20% by 2021.
 
In the UK alone, we consume 13 billion plastic bottles a year – 7.7 billion of them are plastic water bottles, despite us having some of the best quality drinking water in the world.
 
If just 1 in 10 people in the UK refilled once a week, we’d save around 340 million plastic bottles a year.
 
 

Costs

 
The UK spends more than £1.8 billion a year on bottled water – around 3 bottles a week each on average.
 
Bottled water costs 500-1000 times more than tap water – and the UK has some of the best quality drinking water in the world.
 
 

Waste and litter

 
About 700,000 plastic bottles are littered every single day in the UK.
 
Almost half of these bottles are not recycled. And around 15 million plastic bottles are littered, landfilled or incinerated every day – ending up in our natural environment and flowing into our oceans.
 
 

Global environmental impacts

 
The production and incineration of plastic give rise to an estimated 400 million tonnes of CO2 a year globally. Bottled water is 900 times more carbon-intensive than tap water.
 
It takes over 8 litres of water to produce a single bottle.
 
Landfill and incineration of plastic bottles from the UK produces about 233,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year.
 
A recent global study of bottled water brands found tiny plastic particles (microplastics) in over 90% of samples.
 
Plastic bottles now make up one-third of all plastic pollution in the sea.
 
The impact on our wildlife is becoming catastrophic – 100,000 marine mammals and turtles and 1 million seabirds are killed by plastic pollution annually.
