Kerbside Collection

You can recycle glass jars and bottles through the  collection service using Winchester City Council’s black collection boxes.

Please ensure recycling is empty and clean. You do not need to remove lids and bottle tops.

Metal lids and bottle tops can be recycled separately – see the section on ‘Metal’.

Spectacles are not accepted but see our section of Glasses Lenses for schemes to reuse lenses.

Light bulbs are not accepted but see ‘Energy Saving Light Bulbs’ for schemes to recycle these.

Mirrors, cookware, crockery, vases and nail varnish bottles are not accepted for recycling.
