We get asked a lot about why we don’t have a kerbside glass collection. We would love to be able to introduce this, but unfortunately don’t have the funds needed to change collection vehicles and routes, provide bins or boxes, and other associated costs.
All your glass – from wine and beer bottles to baby food and sauce jars – can still be recycled at one of over 700 glass recycling banks across the city. Just give your jars a quick rinse first. You can even leave the caps or lids on, as these will get recycled too!

We’re celebrating the arrival of new bottle banks at Lidl’s Halton store car park with an amazing competition!
