Recycling Bottles – from NFDC

We are pleased to announce New Forest District Council will shortly be introducing a new kerbside Household Glass Collection Service to your area. The scheme has already been well received by residents and is already proving successful where it has been introduced in the Waterside area.

Glass bottles and jars can be recycled over and over again, and plays a valuable part in helping to reduce our use of natural resources, energy and also saves money. It provides an easier and more convenient option for many residents to get involved in recycling.

Boxes for the glass and information packs will be delivered to households in your area during the week of 9 September and have been designed to make them easy to read and understand. Once in place the scheme will work in the following way:

· Boxes should be stored within the property boundary

· All glass bottles and jars can be put in the box

· Boxes will be collected once every four weeks

· On collection days, boxes should be placed just inside the property boundary by 7am

The black and clear sack rubbish and recycling schemes will stay the same. Bottle banks will remain in place and their usage will be monitored over the coming months.
