Southend-on-Sea

Southend on Sea is often listed as one of the ‘greenest’ cities in the UK. Located on the seafront, Southend-on-Sea is committed to minimising the impact of plastics on the environment and the ocean. While household waste is recycled widely, plastic recycling for business waste is still developing.

Our focus

Creating a financially viable recycling industry, as well as creating capacity and incentives for recycling technologies to develop are focus points for the region. The PlastiCity project increases awareness for plastic recycling, as well as selecting the right technologies and locations to set up a circular value chain.

The accreditation will use a point scoring system that equates to either a bronze, silver, or a gold certification. Points will be scored by organisations attending training, making changes to their recycling habits, and showcasing the positive changes they have made to the local environment.
