Glass Recycling

Glass bottles and jars are one of the easiest things to recycle and can be recycled many times over – in fact, glass can be recycled endlessly. It doesn’t lose its quality throughout the process either, so by recycling your materials there is a reduced need for resources to be used to make new glass.

The Types of Glass We Collect

At Printwaste, we make the glass recycling process easy. There is no need to separate your glass by colour, we just ask that they are rinsed before being put in the bin to reduce contamination. All the glass waste that is collected is re-purposed back into single coloured glass or recycled into aggregate and used in the construction industry.

Not all glass is recyclable—please do not include Pyrex baking dishes, heat resistant ovenware or ceramic items within your glass recycling bins.

Examples of the types of glass we can recycle include:

Glass bottles and jars

Any colour of glass

UPVC window glass
