Every house has a recycling collection of glass bottles and jars.

Recycling collections are fortnightly and take place between 6am (May to August) 7am (September to April) and 6pm.

No, thank you

If you live in a flat or a maisonette and share waste and recycling bins, you will have a communal bin for glass, which will be emptied on the same day as the recycling bins.

Order a new or extra glass box

You can collect a new or extra glass box from Deanes reception at the Council Offices between 8:30am and 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.

Alternatively order online allowing up to 10 days for delivery.
