Glass collection

Your glass should be put out in a 38 litre box.

Glass is collected from homes every four weeks.

What can go in?

Rinsed out glass bottles and jars of all colours (without corks or tops).

What can’t go in?

  • 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 in your EHDC box can be collected. If you regularly have excess glass, additional glass boxes can be purchased online. Only 38 litre boxes will be collected.

Alternatively, you can take your bottles to a local bottle bank. Recycle Now's tool will help you find your nearest recycling point.

If you arrive at the bottlebank and it is full or there is a problem, you can report this to us using your MyEHDC account.
