Larger glass banks to be introduced

New larger glass recycling banks are being installed across the East Hampshire district to enhance and encourage glass recycling.

East Hampshire District Council, with Norse South East (NSE), has agreed to introduce large 10,700 litre enclosed eye-catching skips that are nine times larger than current glass collection bins.

Fitted with a sensor device, the new glass recycling banks will also allow for remote monitoring of capacity available, before emptying is required, reducing the environmental impact of unnecessary repeated collections.

The larger glass recycling banks will begin to be installed at locations throughout the district during the next couple of weeks, making it easier than ever for residents to recycle more of their bottles and jars quickly and easily.

Councillor Robert Mocatta, Portfolio Holder for Climate Change and Placemaking at East Hampshire District Council, said: "The new banks are a cost-effective way to increase recycling by providing larger glass banks.

“It will also reduce the number of trips made to empty the banks, reducing our carbon footprint.”

These new larger glass banks will supplement the current glass kerbside collection scheme in the district. This will allow for more recycling, whilst reducing the issues of the existing overfilled smaller glass banks.
