Water refill machine to be installed at the Civic Centre

Uckfield Town Councillors agreed at their recent meeting to confirm the installation of a refill water system at the towns Civic Centre.

Currently the only place in Uckfield to offer this service is Costa, in the High Street.

Visitors to the town will be able to refill their drinking bottles for free when the machine is installed.

The cost to the council will be £500 with an annual service contract of about £150.

When the machine is installed the council will register as a ‘refill station’ and this will then appear on the ‘refill app’

This project is part of Uckfield’s plastic free campaign to reduce the use of single use plastics.
