As the world returns to work after the excesses of the Christmas and New Year holidays, some workers might still be feeling a little delicate today having over-indulged over the festive period.

That is certainly possible in Bracknell in Berkshire, where a row of huge bottle banks have been spotted full to overflowing.

This morning on the ground around the glassware receptacles, which are situated near a supermarket in the town, was a forest of multi-coloured bottles and bright screw-on tops.

The colourful containers which once held the champagne, prosecco, wine and beer consumed by Home Counties revellers over the holidays are now standing neatly around the overflowing bins.

Bottles and labels peaking from the apertures of the bottle banks show residents filled all 10 huge bins pictured before starting to stand their empties on the ground

If you peer closely at the left hand side of this photograph one or two J2O bottles might be visible, and at the right there may be a pasta jar - but there is no doubt the recycling-minded residents of Bracknell think booze is best

Extremely conscientiously, the Berkshire town's drinkers have stacked their clear empties next to the bins for clear glass
