The City of Daytona Beach is replacing old-fashion drinking fountains at several city locations with water bottle fill stations to reduce plastic waste.
According to a release, choosing to refill rather than purchase single-use plastic bottled water is now easier and tastier when visiting a city facility. The stations allow hands-free filling of bottles and include a tracker that counts the number of plastic bottles diverted from landfills.
The upgraded water bottle refill stations are touch-free, environmentally friendly, chill water, and have an added filter.
The nine new fill stations are found at the following locations:
- Two at City Hall, 301 S. Ridgewood Ave.
- Two at Public Works facility, 950 Bellevue Ave.*
- Campbell Aquatic Center, 400 S. Dr. MLK Blvd. *
- City Island Park, 113 Jackie Robinson Parkway
- Derbyshire Park, 849 Derbyshire Road
- Midtown Community Center, 925 George W. Engram Blvd. *
- Schnebly Recreation Center, 1101 N. Atlantic Ave.
