Glass Recycling: Back our Campaign!

Residents want to be greener. Residents want doorstep glass recycling. So why is Tunbridge Wells Borough Council one of the very few councils in Kent not to offer this service to residents? The Conservative-run council keep ignoring the issue and making excuses. Sign our petition to make them listen!

Ben Chapelard, Lib Dem councillor for St James' explains “TW Borough Council (TWBC) is one of the very few councils in Kent which does not offer this service to residents.”

“We believe Conservative-run TWBC should collect glass with the normal recycling.”

“Currently glass either doesn’t get recycled at all or residents drive to bottle banks creating more pollution and congestion! It is such a waste!”

Ben adds “Tunbridge Wells residents are clear - they want better recycling. The Conservative-run council keep ignoring the issue and making excuses. That’s why we have set up a petition to get them to listen.”

We call on Tunbridge Wells Borough Council to introduce door step glass recycling.

    Glass needs to be collected along with all other recycling – amazed it isn’t already part of the recycling programme. Glass is heavy and if you haven’t got a car, how do you take it to a recycling point?!

    Good idea especially as we are on a private road and we pay £2800 council rates yearly – the only direct service we receive is refuse collection.

    It’s complete madness that we don’t do this already.

    Just moved to TW and astonished that glass collection isn’t standard. Unfair on those who are ill/incapacitated and/or without a car, and terrible on the environment to expect those with to make extra journeys.
