Many of our bin collection days have changed, however the collection schedule for purple glass recycling boxes remains the same.

If you have a purple recycling box, its collection day has not changed. If you are in any doubt, please check your collection schedules online.

Please note that your purple recycling box may be collected on a different day to your other household bins.

  • Households on the scheme will receive a 44 litre purple box.
  • It's for recycling glass bottles and jars only.
  • The bottles and jars need to be empty and washed out or rinsed, but you don't need to remove the labels.
  • No lids or bottle tops please.
  • Put the lid on your box and leave it out for collection on the same day as your recycling bin.
