From November 4 blue bins for glass recycling will be delivered to every household on the council's kerbside recycling circuit.

When the bins arrive, take them inside and start using them straight away. Fill them up with clean, unbroken jars and bottles and then put them out beside the red bin and on your usual rubbish day. If you notice one sitting outside your neighbour's place - take it around the back for them so it doesn't blow away.
