Suspension of glass recycling collection service

  • About the suspension of the glass recycling collection service

    Last updated: 5pm on Wednesday 27 July 2022

    Due to operational issues we’ve had to take the decision to temporarily suspend our glass recycling collection service.

    This affects households that have a purple or black glass recycling box.

    It does not affect:

    • wheelie box collections
    • Bryson recycling collections

    We appreciate this is a huge inconvenience and we’re really sorry for this disruption to our service.

    We will review our operations in four weeks and will keep residents informed through our website and social media channels.

  • What can I do with my glass recycling?

    During the suspension you can take glass recyclables to your nearest bottle bank, or if you have access to transport you can dispose of glass at your nearest recycling centre. We appreciate this will not be possible for everyone.
