Glass campaign proves licensees do have the bottle

Across North England, as Biffa doubles glass collections and customers for the recycled product grow, organisers of the Have You Got The Bottle? campaign celebrate its success. Launched in summer 2007 the campaign encourages hospitality trade licensees to recycle more waste glass by signing up for a collection service. The organisers, Recycling Action Yorkshire (RAY), Renew Tees Valley (RTV) and Envirolink Northwest (EN), found that licensees had got the bottle! Other successes attributed to the campaign include: * more than 300 tonnes of glass from licensees in Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate recycled by 3b Waste Solutions; * trade increased for GAM Schuller; * staff numbers grew for J&B Recycling and; * referrals for glass collection services received by RAY, RTV and EN rose. Campaign spokesperson Ben Stone said: We hope the initial momentum will continue. Obviously over the Christmas period a massive amount of glass waste will be created, and we would urge all licensees to act responsibly and add their weight to this important and valuable campaign.
