Wasteserv insists it will not accept glass for recycling, mixed with other materials
WasteServ said that the collection of glass for recycling is administered by two private schemes, which are responsible to collect segregated glass.
The company stated it notified these schemes that it will not accept glass which is mixed with other material, such as plastic containers, carton boxes and other waste.
WasteServ added that the ability for glass recycling mixed with other material is very limited and disrupts the scheme’s aim and also nullifies the public’s efforts to separate waste.
WasteServ said that it has already distributed stackable bins to every household as part of its Sort it Out campaign, which should be made use of.
This declaration was made following notices sent to residents by local councils, informing them that glass would only be collected when taken out in the containers provided by Wasteserv, and not in carton boxes or plastic bags.
