Hounslow's Precious Plastic project is a local community solution to an ever growing environmental plastic problem ! We all now have heard about impacts of plastic pollution on our environment every day. Here, in Hounslow Borough, we want to make a change and a difference. We want the Community of Hounslow to become part of a solution to this ever growing environment concern. Everyone of us have a responsibility as plastic consumers to find way to reduce the use of it and/or recycle it and this is what Hounslow Precious Plastic is about! Based on "Precious Plastic" movement that started in 2013 as a solution to the problem that is plastic waste. Precious Plastic is more than just recycling, it is REUSING. The process is simple : 1/Collect discarded plastic 2/Process it: shred it into small pieces and 2/ Recycle it by remould it! We need your help so that we can turn plastic into re-usable products such as jewellery items, mobile phone cases and more!

What we'll deliver:

  • Create a Small Local Community Collection Plastic Recycling Centre with 4 x Plastic Recycling Machines
  • Create a Local Community Team of "Anti-Plastic Warriors", "Triage & Processing Specialists" and "Recycling Champions"
  • Display Locally recycled plastic items
  • Run Educational Local Discovery Recycling Workshops
