Cherwell To Expand Glass Collection Scheme Following Trial Success

Cherwell council is expanding a glass collection scheme after the success of a pilot, which involved reusable bags. Around 4,000 reusable bags were delivered to households in the district, able to hold around six bottles – this allowed residents to easily take their used glass to bottle banks.

Since the scheme launched two of its sites have seen increases in glass collected by almost 80%, while a third site was up by 30%.
