Refill Scheme
In a bid to further reduce plastic pollution in our area, Broadland District Council is encouraging groups to join the Refill scheme. Refill is a national water campaign which allows you to refill your own bottle with tap water at designated refill stations across the UK, therefore reducing the use of single-use bottles. Local groups are central in promoting the scheme by encouraging local businesses to sign up and get involved. Participating businesses simply put their location on the Refill app and put a sticker in their window to let the public know they’re welcome to come in and fill up their bottle for free. We are supporting the sign up of local groups, and have some Refill bottles to give away to the first 15 groups to sign up to the scheme to be used as part of a local competition.
If you are interested in signing up to the Refill scheme please let us know and we will provide the details so you can get started! If you need any more information regarding the Refill scheme please feel free to contact us or visit the Refill website at
