Glass recycling - weekly collection


Weekly glass recycling

Leave your bins in a clearly visible place at the edge of your property from 6.30am on collection day. We work as normal on bank holiday Mondays and Good Friday. What happens if a collection is missed?

Your recycling box is for glass bottles and jars ONLY. You can recycle glass bottles and jars of any colour. You don't need to remove the labels, but you can take lids off and recycle them in your green recycling bin.

DON'T put your glass in your green recycling bin. Glass in your green bin smashes and devalues the rest of the contents. Right thing, right bin.

Please don't recycle:

  • Drinking glasses
  • Window or mirror glass
  • Ceramics
