Glass recycling banks
We provide local recycling banks for glass bottles and jars.
You should leave tops on bottles and jars as the processing plant will recycle these together with glass in the same facility.
Do not bring, kitchenware, Pyrex and glasses to the recycling bank as the processing plant cannot recycle these.
Some sites also have recycling banks for textiles and shoes, paper, plastic bottles, cans.
If the glass bring bank is full, you should not leave your recycling on the ground. Instead, you should take it home until your next visit.
You can find your nearest recycling bank on the Recycle More website.
