The decorations are down, the mince pies are eaten and even the hangover is subsiding - but for many of us one thing remains from the festive period.
Mountains of rubbish languish in kitchens and garages across the nation, and this provides an opportunity to help the struggling glass recycling industry.
With the sector facing steeply rising packaging recovery targets, a TV chef has fronted a campaign to increase the amount of clear glass recovered from waste bins.
Trade association British Glass is running the campaign to help find the clear glass needed for the UK to hit its 55% packaging recovery target in 2005.
Manufacturers have a large capacity to use clear cullet in producing new containers, but most bottles are green as they are imported.
Woodford said: "Many people remember to recycle empty bottles at Christmas but forget about recycling all the empty jars of mincemeat and cranberry sauce."
British Glass director of strategy and communications Andrew Hartley added: "Around 50% of the glass collected for recycling in the UK is green. We want to increase the amount of clear and brown glass that is being recycled, as we have the capacity to hugely increase the percentages being used to make new bottles and jars.
"Glass is associated with quality and special celebrations, which is why many more products packaged in glass are purchased during the festive season."
