Glass recycling

Glass

Glass

  • Bottles and jars are usually separated by colour: brown, clear and green
  • Place in the correct colour bin (Unless there is a mixed colour glass collection)
  • Recycle your blue glass with your green glass
  • Wash out bottles and jars, remove caps and corks before recycling (avoid wasting water, use your washing-up water)
  • Light bulbs, Pyrex-type dishes, windowpanes etc. should not be put into glass banks

Bottle bank recycling

Advice:

Re-use jars for storage. Most supermarkets have glass banks; therefore, recycle alongside your weekly shop. Please visit our recycling locator to find out where you can recycle near you!
