Recycled bottles support Remembrance display

Thousands of recycled plastic bottles have been used by service users at a Dudley Council run centre to create a poppy display in Amblecote.

Dudley Council’s waste care team has provided thousands of plastic bottles, collected through the doorstep recycling service, to Queens Cross Network.

Service users at the centre have been busy creating poppies from the bottom of the bottles, following on from the success of a similar project last year.

They have made 2023 poppies to create a Remembrance display organised by ward members in Amblecote. Additional poppies have also been made for display at Queen’s Cross Network.

The section of the bottle which has not been used has been sent back to the waste care team for recycling. Councillor Damian Corfield, cabinet member for highways and environmental services, said:

"Thanks to the bottles collected through our recycling service, we’ve been able to support this important project to mark Remembrance.

"It’s clear a huge amount of work has gone into creating this poppy display, which I’m sure will be welcomed by residents."

Councillor Matt Rogers, cabinet member for adult social care, added: "This has been a real team effort by everyone at Queens Cross Network to create thousands of poppies.

“A huge thank you to all involved. I’m sure this year’s display will be as well received as last year as we head towards Remembrance later this week."
