A new glass recycling bank has been installed in Havisham Road near the Ferry House Lodge to enable nearby residents to recycle more of their waste.

Residents in the nearby area, such as in Grafton Street and Estella Road, will now be able to recycle their glass using the facility.  The glass bank is in a metal enclosure to reduce any noise pollution.

Councillor Dave Ashmore, Portsmouth City Council's Cabinet Member for Environment & Climate Change, said: "We are keen to continue installing bring banks around the city to make it much easier for residents to recycle items such as glass, which cannot currently be recycled through the household recycling collection scheme. We hope this makes it easier for local residents to use these banks rather than putting glass in their rubbish bins. This should help the city increase its recycling and reduce wastage."

Councillor Darren Sanders, Portsmouth City Council's cabinet member for housing, said: "I am keen to increase the number of glass recycling banks around our local authority housing areas. This new facility close to Grafton Street is the first of more banks we plan to install over the coming year."

There are more than 100 recycling points around the city where you can recycle items which can't be collected from home such as glass, clothes, books, DVDs, cartons/tetra paks.
