Woodstock Avenue bottle banks
Due to works being carried out by Scottish Borders Housing Association in the Langlee area of Galashiels, the Woodstock Avenue bottle banks are currently unavailable. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and will have the service available again as soon as possible once the works have been completed.
Croft Car Park Ayton
Due to the close proximity of overhead cables to the bottle banks, our contractor is unable to service this site in a safe manner. As we have been unable to find an alternative location at this time, we have regrettably had to take the decision to remove the bottle banks with effect from 15 July 2016.
If a suitable location is identified in the future we would be happy to return the bottle banks to Ayton.
For free re-usable hessian bags to store your glass and transport to the nearest bottle bank, please contact customer services on 0300 100 1800.
