Glass collections reinstated

Household glass collections begin again on 3 October

Our service provider, Norse South East (NSE), has confirmed that they are able to reinstate household glass collections from next Monday (3 October).

Ahead of the service restarting on Monday, crews have been out clearing excess glass from bottle bank sites around the district.

The reinstatement of services is the result of a successful recruitment drive over the last two months, supported by EHDC. NSE now has enough directly employed drivers and loaders to reduce its reliance on agency staff and provide a more resilient service.

The service will be reintroduced following existing glass collection patterns. If you don’t have your calendar, please check our website.

Where possible, crews will take any excess glass on the first collection, provided it is in a suitable container to be carried and emptied into the vehicle.

Additional temporary bottle banks have been installed around the district which will remain in place while the service catches up. These can be found on our online map.

We are sorry for the disruption to the service and thank you for your patience during the suspension.
