We are not currently considering the introduction of a kerbside glass recycling service for two main reasons.
We already deliver a successful glass recycling service based on community bring sites (bottle banks) located around the district. This is a practicable and workable solution for a large rural district council like Newark and Sherwood. Currently glass cannot be recycled through the Mansfield MRF (Materials Recovery Facility) run by Veolia. We have a separate contract for its disposal via local community-based bottle banks. Current figures indicate that we are diverting around 60% of the total glass used by residents and businesses away from the general waste stream. This is comparable with kerbside systems.
The cost of introducing a kerbside glass system requiring additional bins, vehicles and manpower is huge. It is difficult to produce a business case that justifies the cost of such a service when considering the additional amount of glass that could be collected over and above that which we already capture.
