Glass collection

Glass collection update - Friday 13 May

Norse South East is currently experiencing a temporary shortage of staff for their glass collection rounds in the Alton, Bordon, Clanfield, Horndean, Liphook, Liss and Petersfield areas of the district.

This should be resolved by the end of this week, and we kindly ask that you bear with us.

In the meantime, please visit www.recyclenow.com and enter your postcode to find your nearest glass bank. If you are unable to visit your local glass bring site, please put your container out for collection on your next scheduled collection date for crews to collect.

East Hampshire District Council and Norse South East apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


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)

Your box will not be collected if it has incorrect items. You will have to remove these items before your next collection.

Glass is collected from homes every four weeks. Your glass should be put out in a 38 litre box.

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.
