They believe the village requires the service due to the high number of holiday lets.
Cllr Shaun Whyte, parish council chairman, explained: “This issue has been raised a number of times and, as yet, no workable solution has been found.”
Cllr Martin Swinbank, Alnwick ward member, indicated there was no short-term plan to roll out the scheme countywide due to the cost.
Cllr Whyte pointed out: “The concern for Alnmouth is that we have a high proportion of holiday lets and when everyone is moving out and sorting out their rubbish – and have had a few drinks – are they going to trek to the recycling point at Alnwick or are they going to stick them in the recycling bins which aren’t for glass?
"It’s a problem far more for Alnmouth than it would be for Lesbury where there is a far higher percentage of residents whereas here we have holidaymakers who don’t know what to do with their bottles at the end of the week.”
Cllr Swinbank responded: “I understand the dilemma and I personally don’t think the county are doing nearly enough so I will ask the question as to whether the trial could be extended to somewhere like Alnmouth.”
Cllr Simon Walford pointed out that most commercial premises in the village already have a glass collection pick-up and wondered if a public/private partnership could be a solution.
