Councillor Lulu Bowerman, the council’s cabinet lead for environmental services, said: ‘I am pleased for the introduction of these new larger glass banks that will allow residents to recycle even more glass.

‘The new technology combined with the increase in size will prevent unsightly and overflowing areas in the borough.

‘It will also reduce the number of trips made to empty the banks, reducing our carbon footprint.’
