Kerbside glass recycling collections to be reinstated

KERBSIDE glass recycling collections will be reinstated from 1 June.

Due to driver and vehicle availability, and to comply with social distancing instructions, domestic glass collections will resume on a three-weekly schedule until further notice.

Householders should present their glass recycling with their green, pink and blue bins, and all will be collected on the same day. Meanwhile, glass recycling facilities will remain in place at recycling points and bottle banks at local supermarkets.

Moray Council’s Waste Manager, Mike Neary, said: “With the re-introduction of kerbside glass collections, householders are encouraged to use this as the main way of disposing of their glass recycling. Any excess can be taken to recycling points and bottle banks – no glass will be accepted at recycling centres for the time being.

“As we have done throughout our response to the Coronavirus crisis, we’ll keep our operations under regular review, with the aim of re-instating a full service for our residents as soon as possible.”
