Newark and Sherwood District Council have asked residents to have their say on if a glass collection service is needed.

The council has been exploring the possibility of providing a collection service kerbside after having a significant number of additional comments made in relation to such a service.

The proposed kerbside recycling scheme would provide those residents who wish to receive the service with an additional, but smaller (two thirds of the size of a normal bin) wheelie bin with collections every eight weeks.

Councillor David Lloyd, Leader of Newark and Sherwood District Council, said: “Creating a greener district is a top for priority for local residents and therefore a top priority for the Council.

“We’ve listened. And now we need peoples’ views to move forward.

“This public consultation is a vital step to ensure this proposed new service meets our residents’ needs, and further our work creating a cleaner, safer, and greener Newark and Sherwood.”

The responses to this survey will be used to inform its decision on whether a kerbside glass collection service is introduced.
