A lot of bottle for trial
THE council is seeing double after the success of a glass recycling trial.
Residents in about an eighth of the city have been allowed to include glass jars and bottles with their recycling in a pilot scheme.
Around 286 tonnes of mixed recycling has been collected, of which around 14 per cent was glass jars and bottles – twice as much as expected.
Cllr Brian Vincent, Cabinet member for the environment, said: "We know others are keen to have this collection but want to make sure it is all going smoothly before we roll it out across the city."
