MID and East Antrim Borough Council along with volunteers from Portglenone Paddlers collected rubbish, plastic and debris from the River Bann last Thursday evening.

The Portglenone Marina clean-up was supported by NI Water as part of their Refillution campaign. This campaign is aimed at encouraging everyone to commit to refilling a reusable water bottle with tap water in an attempt to reduce plastic waste.

Northern Ireland currently uses 145 million single use plastic bottles a year.

This equates to over 11 million in Mid and East Antrim alone which is why Mid and East Antrim Borough Council are supporting NI Water’s campaign and taking the Refill message right across the Borough.
