What happens next to the glass I recycle in Leeds?
Have you ever wondered what happens next to the glass that you recycle in one of Leeds' 700 bottle banks?

The amount of glass collected from glass banks in Leeds increased by 61% in May - compared with May 2019. With us all at home more, consuming more, it's more important than ever that we recycle as much as we can.
