A Coca-Cola campaign will tackle recycling in Dublin’s city centre with vending machine bins.
The number of recycling bins in the city will double today to promote a circular economy, they will be installed in the Docklands area and St. Andrew’s Street.
The Minister of State for the Circular Economy Ossian Smyth TD said: “I’m delighted to see the expansion of the Dublin #CircleCity recycling initiative which is helping to encourage people to recycle cans and plastic bottles as they are out and about in our capital city.
“Everyone has a role to play in our transition to a circular economy. Through the new on-the-go recycling facilities, we can extend the life of the products and ensure we reach our target of recycling 60 percent of our waste by 2030.”
The second phase of the Dublin #CircleCity campaign will double the number of recycling bins in Dublin city centre and it will trial the use of 15 Big Belly bins in the Docklands area of the city – these smart-bins feature a solar-powered compactor allowing it to hold up five times the amount of material.
