Kerbside glass recycling service
We are delighted to be bringing a free wheeled bin kerbside glass recycling service to Newark and Sherwood as it means that across the district we will be able to recycle glass bottles and jars from kerbsides.
Key information about our service
This will be a free service and you will be given a new, smaller 140 litre wheelie bin. Collections will take place every eight weeks and we plan to begin delivering bins to households later this year.
I’ve received a letter about this service
That’s great! We are currently writing to all residents who live in Newark and Sherwood, to find out who will be using our service. We will then plan our collection rounds and start working towards rolling the service out. While we don’t have an exact date yet, we’ll keep you posted via our website and social media channels.
If you live in, or have friends in, certain areas in the north-west of our district (around Ollerton, Boughton, Edwinstowe, Bilsthorpe and Eakring for example), you / they will receive a different letter from us because a local community group offers some kerbside glass provision there already. If you live in this area, you can find some more information about this service, which is provided by Recycling Ollerton and Boughton (ROB), on their website. Copies of the letters we are sending out, which will hit doorsteps over the next two to three weeks, can be found below:

Letter to those living within the ROB collection area (PDF File, 509kb)
What do I need to do?
For most residents:
If you live outside of the area covered by ROB (the majority of the district), then you do not need to do anything to receive our kerbside glass collection service. If however, for any reason you would not like to receive a new bin and would like to opt out of the service, please do so by 16 July 2023.
To opt out, please complete our online form. Alternatively, please contact our customer services team using one of the methods on our Contact Us webpage.
For those in the ROB area:
If you live within the area covered by ROB (certain areas in the north-west of our district including Ollerton, Boughton, Edwinstowe, Bilsthorpe and Eakring for example), then you must sign up to our wheeled bin kerbside glass recycling service by 16 July 2023.
To opt in, please complete our online form. Alternatively, please complete the opt in form using the free business return envelope that is being posted to you. If you receive this letter, you will know that you live within the ROB catchment. If you have any questions, please contact our customer services team using one of the methods on our Contact Us webpage.
