Amber warning for hot weather from Wednesday 10th August at the HRC's

We are monitoring the weather forecasts for this week and we may need to close our HRCs early afternoon if temperatures are too high for the site staff to safely operate in, so we advise you make your booking as early in the day as possible.  We will update any changes here and on Gloucestershire County Council social media as soon as possible.


Flat glass

Where it is taken?

Emhart Glass, Doncaster

What happens to it?

The flat glass is  sent for pre-treatment at South Kirkby, then onto a Doncaster facility for further processing. The processed furnace ready cullet produced during the process is then sold to a local packaging manufacturer in Doncaster who manufacture new glass bottles and jars from the recycled material.
