Glass collection

Glass collection

Put your glass box out by 7am on your recycling day, we will collect it every four weeks.

Rinsed out glass bottles and jars of all colours can go in the box, but no tops or corks.

Do not include:

  • Pyrex
  • Light bulbs
  • Glass panes
  • Lead crystal glass
  • Ceramics
  • Non-glass items
  • Broken glass (this should be carefully wrapped and put into your refuse bin)

We won't be able to take your box if it has incorrect items, and you'll have to remove these before the next collection.

Too much glass?

Only glass contained within the EHDC box can be collected. If you regularly have excess glass, additional glass boxes can be purchased direct from Biffa on 01962 670706. Only 38 litre boxes will be collected. 

Alternatively you can use bottle banks for larger quantities of bottles and jars.
