Havant Borough Council, with Norse South East (NSE), has agreed to introduce large 10,700 litre enclosed eye-catching skips that are nine times larger than current glass collection bins.
Fitted with a sensor device, the new glass recycling banks will allow for remote monitoring to reduce the environmental impact of unnecessary repeated collections.

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.’
