Glasses could be removed from Colchester pubs
9:41am Friday 1st March 2013 in News
PUBS and clubs in Colchester town centre are being urged to stop using glass drink containers.
A campaign to get glass out of busy late night premises in the town is growing momentum and now has the support of several high profile figures.
Colchester MP Sir Bob Russell, police and crime commissioner Nick Alston, Colchester Council and the borough’s Community Safety Partnership are all pushing for pubs to switch to polycarbonate containers.
PubWatch, an organisation for landlords in Colchester, has not yet commented on the latest proposal.
