The most recycled items are paper and cardboard. If glass enters the recycling vehicle, it smashes and gets into the paper and cardboard. This lowers the quality of the paper and card and can get rejected.
To collect glass kerbside, we’d need new vehicles and crews for a separate collection. This would take time and investment, but it’s something we hope to provide in the future.
You can recycle glass containers by taking them to a bottle bank. Find your nearest glass bank.
