Less energy is used to melt recycled glass to make new bottles than to make glass from raw materials.
There are glass recycling banks at some supermarket and retail parks. You can search for your nearest one using Recyclenow's local recycling locator
Or if you have a grey bin you can put glass in there and present at the kerbside for collection on the pick-up day. 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.
