Kerbside glass collections are part of the changes East Lindsey District Council is making to their collection of household recycling in the district.
Residents in the district will also receive a new purple-lidded recycling bin for clean and dry paper and card from next month.
The changes have already gone ahead in Boston, North Kesteven, and West Lindsey Council areas aiming to improve the quality of recycling in Lincolnshire, with over 98.5% of the paper and card collected on this scheme rated “great quality” for recycling.
Councillor Martin Foster, Portfolio Holder for Operational Services at East Lindsey District Council, said: “We know this is a change for residents across the District. By aiming to collect high-quality recycling, and reduce contamination, we increase the amount of waste that can be recycled.”
“I know that our residents will be thrilled to be given the option to include glass in their kerbside recycling bins, this has been a long-cherished dream for many, and it is really good that we can now do this.
“To help with these changes we will shortly be sending out a welcome pack to all households in advance including a calendar and a clear recycling guide showing which materials can go in your grey recycling bin and new purple-lidded bin. A dedicated team will be on hand to help and give advice and guidance via email and out in the community supporting the rollout.
“We expect to start delivering the new purple-lidded paper and card bins from the end of August and this will be done in phases across the district. Your welcome pack will explain in more detail.”
