Glass Recycling

As we become more environmentally aware, Glass Recycling is rapidly growing with over 752,000 tons of glass recycled annually in the UK. It's also now a legal requirement for all Alcoholic Beverage Permit Holders to recycle their glass bottles. Glass is 100% recyclable, meaning it can be used again, and again, and again...for a wide variety of glass products.

As landfill tax prices are increasing, glass recycling in the UK provides an environmentally friendly and financially affordable alternative. If you put glass in your general waste bin it can lead to hefty landfill charges as it increases the bin weight and takes up valuable space. At Direct365, we can offer glass recycling services tailored to your business's needs, making recycling simple and stress-free.

All about our Glass Recycling Service

Eco Friendly Glass Recycling

Glass must be recycled separately from dry mixed recycled DMR waste (plastic, paper, cans and cardboard). We provide you with your own 240L or 360L glass recycling bin (sizes vary by region) to place your glass bottles and jars in, and we'll collect at an interval that suits you. Heavy glass users such as bars and restaurants may require weekly, whereas fortnightly and monthly could be more suited to less frequent collections.

The main benefit from glass recycling is that it cuts down the weight and space used in your general waste collection, and could also save your business money in the long run. Glass bottles or jars are heavy and hollow, meaning they take up a lot of space and weigh a lot! But without glass in your general waste bins, you can fit a lot more in and have it weigh less for when it comes to disposing it at landfill.
