Glass recycling service for Wycombe district residents

Post Time:Mar 09,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:204

WINE lovers in Wycombe district may no longer have to drive down to the dump or to their nearest recycling centre to get rid of their bottles.

 

In future, council chiefs aim to make glass one of the materials collected direct from residents' homes.

 

Currently, Wycombe District Council does not take glass items as part of its recycling pick ups.

 

But it is working with neighbouring Chiltern District Council to secure a contract which will increase the range of materials collected.

 

Residents in the Chiltern district can already leave out their glass for recycling.

 

Green boxes are put outside households for mixed glass.

 

This includes items such as jam jars, coffee jars, vinegar bottles, sauce jars and beer or wine bottles.

 

But they do no take broken glass, Pyrex, or window glass.

 

Catherine Spalton, spokesman for WDC said: “We are currently involved in the joint procurement of a new rubbish, recycling and street cleaning contract with Chiltern District Council.

 

“Through this contract, both councils are looking to expand the range of materials that are collected and recycled.

 

“In the Wycombe district, we would like to introduce a glass recycling collection service. At this stage, the details of any new collection service hasn't been decided.”
