As part of a seven year contract with the London Borough of Hillingdon (LBH), the stream will be included for the first time as part of the companys collection of mixed dry recyclables from the area.
An original five year deal which lasted until July 2006 saw 8,000 tonnes of waste processed at the companys Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) at Tanhouse Farm near Slough. As part of that contract, the bagged materials were collected by LBHs own waste division.
But now, between 13,500 and 15,000 tonnes will be collected each year, with Grundon spending the £250,000 to upgrade its MRF to be able to separate the glass waste.
LBH cabinet member for environment councillor Sandra Jenkins said: The new contract is a key element in helping us meet government targets to increase recycling and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill sites.
It will also enable us to incorporate glass into our current household collections, allowing residents to mix glass bottles and jars in with cardboard, paper, aluminium tins, steel cans and other recyclables.
While initially running for seven years, the link-up carries the option for three annual extensions.
