Glass Recycling

Fareham does not currently provide a kerbside glass collection service but has a network of glass bank locations across the Borough (see above). Any decision to change from a glass bank collection service to a kerbside collection service will be dependant on the legislative requirements for kerbside collection of recyclable material associated with the new Environment Bill.

Under the new arrangements we anticipate there will be an opportunity for the Council to collect glass at the kerbside with other recyclable containers including, cans and plastic bottles when the legislation is introduced.

This will be provide a more cost effective and efficient collection of glass and will produce significantly less CO2 emissions than a separate kerbside glass collection service.
