Your glass crate

Suspension to glass kerbside collection service

Due to Covid affecting our contractor's staff, there will be no collection of the blue GLASS CRATE between 5 - 9th June. We apologise for the inconvenience. 

If your blue crate is scheduled to be emptied during this time, you can either hold onto your glass until the next collection day or take your glass to the nearest transfer station or the Junction on Colson Road for free disposal.

Your blue glass crate is collected fortnightly. You can check when your next pick-up is scheduled by searching the bin collection schedule or downloading the free NPDC Recycling and Rubbish app to your smartphone.

Please don't overfeed your glass crate.  Glassware stacked over the inside line can fall and smash, and will be too heavy for the collector to pick up.  If you have more glass than your crate can handle, try asking your neighbours if they have some extra space or take it to a transfer station for recycling which is free of charge. Please keep the weight of the contents below 12kg.

Please feed your glass crate only clean glass with no lids.
