We will be reintroducing kerbside glass recycling collections from Tuesday, 28 April, when they will return to usual fortnightly collection schedules.
The service was suspended in March to help prioritise resources for other essential bin collections while enabling waste collection crews to observe social distancing guidelines.
Following the return of several team members from absence, as well as the bedding in of new collection arrangements, we will be able to reintroduce the collection of blue boxes for glass recycling.
We’re encouraging residents to put out only one blue box on their collection date, filled to the brim and not over-filled, and to store any excess glass for the next collection. This is to protect the safety of crews, as boxes may become too heavy to lift if overflowing.
Garden waste collections and special uplifts are currently suspended while Household Waste and Recycling Centres remain closed, though we’re working hard to reintroduce these services as soon as it is safe to do so.
Further information on changes to bin collections and other services can be found on the Council website.
