Workers carrying out kerbside collections of glass for recycling can be exposed to high levels of noise.

In 2011, WRAP published the findings of a series of noise surveys that advised how all recycling collection systems had the potential to generate noise exposure levels which could potentially exceed action values defined in the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005, and that some vehicles and collections had the potential to breach legal limits.
