Goodbye to plastic cups

Horsforth Town Council is working towards stopping use of single-use plastics.

As a starting point, the Council has stopped using disposable plastic cups during its meetings - councillors will be bringing in their own cup or mug if they want a drink!

The Council would urge businesses and schools in Horsforth to think about how they can reduce their use of single-use plastics.
