Our current consultation on consistency in household and business recycling collections seeks views on whether glass should be one of the core materials to be collected by every council, including in Yorkshire and the Humber.

The Government is currently consulting on introducing a Deposit Return Scheme for drinks containers, including whether it should include glass bottles.

The Government is consulting on a packaging recycling rate for glass of 70% by 2025, and 75% by 2030.
