DOORSTEP glass collections have been suggested for Huddersfield.
Leaders of the Conservative group on Kirklees Council think the mass collection of bottles could be a huge success.
And they hope it will attract all-party support when the idea is debated.
A pilot scheme to collect bottles in parts of the area, including Denby Dale, was only a partial success.
But similar schemes in other towns have worked well and the Tories believe one could be adopted in Huddersfield.
Their proposal to extend glass collection to every home in the area over a two-year period were put forward by group leader Clr Robert Light.
He said: "This will be a huge advance in recycling and the biggest green initiative the council will have undertaken for over 10 years.
"Under the proposals the glass collection scheme will be provided once a month by the council, on top of the existing weekly grey bin and monthly green bin collections.
"The scheme will provide bin collection round by round, with the aim that half the borough will be receiving the new service by April next year and the rest of the borough by 2008.
"Doorstep collection of glass is a service never offered by Kirklees but offered by many other councils."
Clr Light said it was a major environmental scheme which would greatly improve the amount of glass recycling in Kirklees.
He added: "It is a little ironic that, despite having a council administered by the Liberal Democrats and Greens it is the Conservatives who propose the first significant advancement of the green agenda for over a decade.
"For the first time the many residents of Kirklees, who complain that the only service they receive from the council is their bins being emptied, will have a new service from Kirklees.
"We know glass doorstep collection can be done by Kirklees, and that it can be funded within existing budgets.
"So we hope to get support for our initiative."
