We receive frequent calls about the bottle banks being full. The lockdown has substantially increased the amount of glass recycled through these facilities. In 2020 a total of 2877 tonnes were collected which was an increase of 726 tonnes or 33%.
The bottle banks are emptied weekly but occasionally they will fill up, especially if folks have a clear out! Please do call us if you see them full and we will ask for an additional collection. However please be aware that staff illness due to COVID may mean collections cannot take place immediately.
Bottom line, great work!
