Glass recycling

Our idea

Your views

Mansfield District Council is looking to introduce a kerbside glass collection scheme from 2019 and we'd like to hear your views.

Many residents put glass in their blue bin by mistake making glass one of the highest contaminants of recyclable waste in our district. We need to increase our recycling rates in Mansfield, bring contamination down to an acceptable level and make recycling easy for our residents. We feel that being able to split out glass and have it collected with your household waste would be convenient and simple to use.

Our idea

The plan is to give all residents a FREE reusable box bag to collect glass products in. This bag would then be emptied monthly with your household waste. For those who have larger volumes or would like the convenience of an additional bin for glass products, a small 140l bin could be purchased for your property for a one off cost. The anticipated cost will be £20 to £25.

Your views

Before we go ahead, we'd like to hear your views on whether you'd use a glass recycling service in your home and what the benefits would be to you. We'll be carrying out a short consultation during November and early December to gage opinion.

The online survey is now available and will close on 15 December. Paper copies will also be available from local libraries, the Civic Centre and Warsop Town Hall. You can also request a paper copy to be sent to you by email.

If you have any questions or comments on the glass recycling scheme please send them by email.
