GLASS recycling is a “no brainer” according to one environment councillor.

David Flavell who sits on the environment and community committee at Harwich Town Council, has welcomed Tendring Council’s plans to bring in green waste collection, but has called for more work into the possibility of recycling glass.

Tendring is set to trial a green waste collection scheme from April.

Mr Flavell said: “I think people will welcome the green waste collection. You have to pay £25 for a deposit on a wheeled bin, but it is not excessive."
