“The coun­cil has al­ways been clear that the blue box was only tem­po­rary and will be phased out com­pletely in due course as it be­comes in­creas­ingly pos­si­ble within the waste pro­cess­ing in­dus­try to have glass in­cluded in an­other ex­ist­ing bin.

“A neigh­bour­ing coun­cil has just moved to a sim­i­lar sys­tem to us, where this has in fact been pos­si­ble from the very out­set.

“The sys­tem we now have as­sists the public to bet­ter sep­a­rate and present ma­te­ri­als at source to help di­vert as much as pos­si­ble from land­fill eas­ily for the public and cost-ef­fec­tively for the coun­cil.

“It’s fair to say that with a val­ued public ser­vice such as this and which is pro­vided to ev­ery house­hold you can never keep ev­ery­one happy.

“How­ever I have al­ways stressed how vi­tal the ac­tions of the public, our hard-work­ing waste staff and trade unions have been in im­ple­ment­ing these changes for the ben­e­fit of all.”
