QUESTIONS FROM MEMBERS

To receive any questions from Members, notice of which has been given in accordance with the Town Council’s Standing Orders.

 

MOTION FROM COUNILLOR DEAN:

We congratulate those who organised the deposit based takeaway coffee cup scheme recently run at the Shrewsbury Food Festival. We note the success of similar schemes at a range of festivals and sites, including Hay Festival and the town of Freiburg in Germany, where such schemes have drastically reduced the waste from single-use cups.
 

We welcome the current initiative to introduce such a scheme amongst the independent cafes of Shrewsbury, and also at other town sites such as Shrewsbury Town football ground and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
 

The scheme aims to reduce the volume of single use, non-recyclable hot drinks cups used and disposed of. The ‘Shrewsbury Cup’ social enterprise will supply reusable cups to coffee sellers throughout the town. Customers buy a drink and pay a £1 deposit for the cup. They enjoy their drink and then can redeem their £1 at any of the participating outlets.
 

The scheme design aims to bring the following benefits to the town:

  • A reduction in total cost of waste collections

  • A reduction of litter

  • An effective way to support independent local businesses and help them stand out from the large chains

  • Helping to make the town more sustainable and - in a proven way - to change behaviour

  • Putting Shrewsbury on the map as centre for ground breaking initiatives and thereby supporting the ‘Original, On-Off’ brand image. (We could be the first town in UK to truly deliver a scheme that tackles the issue of disposable coffee cups. Other towns and cities are making pledges but Shrewsbury could take the lead.)

  • A new social enterprise – potential to create 2 new jobs in first year then more as project grows.

  • An opportunity to bring together local businesses, councils and the university in practical local action that will make a difference.

    We ask officers to provide appropriate assistance to those developing this scheme for our town and to come back with such further proposals as may be useful for how the Town Council can help ensure the scheme’s success.
