Glass FAQs

Can I put glass jars and bottles in my recycling bin?

No. The Materials Recovery Facility was not designed to sort glass. Your local District or Borough Council may offer a kerbside glass collection in a separate bag or box/bin. If not, your local recycling centre accepts glass or you can take them to your local bottle bank.

Can I put broken Pyrex, glasses, mirrors, picture glass or greenhouse glass in my kerbside recycling container?

No, only glass bottles and jars are accepted in kerbside glass collections.
