Our business is all about ensuring people have the best storage Bangor has to offer, so other business can store anything they don’t need in the short term.
Overcoming clutter is an important part of any businesses’ processes, if it is to function well, and a good way to do that is to reduce and recycling. Luckily, Bangor is leading the way on plastic recycling.
One Bangor councillor has decided to tackle polystyrene in Wales, as part of a campaign that started last autumn. Elin Walker Jones has called for a tax to be placed on polystyrene, which has been backed by her party Plaid Cymru.
Polystyrene has been targeted as it is a single use plastic, and Ms Jones believes it should be the next target for a charge or tax, much like plastic bags. Elin Walker Jones said: “As a Plaid Cymru Councillor, I take pride in the fact that we are acting innovatively in Wales and led the way in charging for single use carrier bags before any other country in the United Kingdom. This led to a 71 per cent reduction in the use of plastic bags within the first three years of the plan.”
Her campaign follows numerous complaints about rubbish around Bangor, and a renewed interest in the level of pollution that plastic can cause in our seas. It is thought there are 12.7 million tonnes of plastic entering the sea annually and it is hoped that the campaign, and hopefully a tax on polystyrene could see the end to this soon.
