What We Do Not Recycle

Our Glass Collection Services

customers with smaller requirements.
1100 litre dedicated container for
regular glass collections.
Bottle banks for local authorities
and busy venues.
Bay of glass ready
for collection.

The Process and Final Destination

We collect and recycle all grades of glass. Once we have collected it, we bring it back to our MRF and each load is quality assessed and weighed on our on-site weighbridge.

The glass is tipped into bays where it is stored until a 28-tonne load is ready for transport to the glass treatment plant.

When the glass reaches the treatment
plant it is colour separated and any
contamination removed.

It can then be melted down and made
into a number of new products such as
new glass bottles, construction
materials, insulation or an additive to

The 28 tons of loose glass is loaded by telehandler onto a waiting articulated lorry. The vehicle will hold 28 tons of glass and we aim to maximise weight on each truck to reduce vehicle movements and carbon footprint.
