Recycling

Glass

Less energy is used to melt recycled glass to make new bottles than to make glass from raw materials.

You can either take your glass to one of our glass recycling banks or if you have a kerbside glass collection put your grey bin out for collection on the pick-up day.

Please see Bins and domestic waste pages for further information on uplift details.

Please do not put glass crockery, ceramic, pyrex dishes or window glass into your bin.

The majority of the glass collected by us is taken to Viridor's glass recycling plant at Newhouse in North Lanarkshire for processing.
