Earlier this week I attended the launch of a new recycling facility outside the Tescos at Ocean Village. The new machine, which takes plastic bottles and tin cans and shreds them into tiny pieces, is one of ten trial units being piloted by Tesco around the country. Southampton was chosen because of its excellent green credentials and the strong commitment that the City Council has to recycling.
If successful more of these machines will be rolled out across the city and elsewhere. As well as helping the environment, Tesco shoppers will be able to pick up points on their Club Cards!
