We don't have bins here, so no rubbish collection. The communal bins are on the way to town so you take your rubbish to them when you go to town. Unlike England glass doesn't go into the recycling bin but into specific bins for that in town or the dechetterie (tip). There were so many Brits in the Dordogne putting glass into the recycling that the local Mayor came out to each household to make sure they knew the rules. After that visit they still had glass in the recycling!! Fortunately those people have now had to go back to England.
